I love the fact that winamp will rip you a playlist file along with the songs from your music cd.

none of the other ones do that. it also rips to aac and aac pro which are superior formats

Apparently they're using limited ad servers, so if you just add these two entries to your hosts file, you'll be good for the present time: Noting that your hosts file is in "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc". For a full description and rants galore (for good reason), visit where I got it from. It's nice being ad-free, once again...
WinAmp bothers me, which is why JetAudio has been my media player of choice for the last few years.
