    Just wondering what people are using to play their music.

    I'm personally happy using AIMP2 under Windows, qmmp, XMMS, or Audacious2 under Linux. XMMS isn't actively being developed, but qmmp and Audacious2 are, so I tend to use them more often then not.

    I use them mostly because they are minimalistic, they provide functions I use and need daily (EQ, Playlist, and MP3/Ogg playback).

    And that's all I need. That and I can throw them in the corner also helps me choose them over anything else.

    What about you?

    I just use the built-in Media Player on Win7. On Linux Mint I use Banshee...they have all I need.

    I use either MediaMonkey or Winamp. Both are great for customizing the player and your library for what you want.

    We're only covering audio here, this is the Music subforum.

    I just want to listen to music...that's all. I don't need to create playlist etc. That's why I don't bother installing a new player.
