  • I find it truly ironic that it's the open source software running on Windows that seems to have the whole light simple and fast thing nailed down.

    • Yeah. On some messageboard from back in my gaming days where I still visit the Linux forum, the first question most new converts ask is “how do I run foobar2000 on Linux?” Usually, a bout of frustration ensues, because none of the players are as small, simple, fast and full-featured. (Most people end up settling on amaroK.)


      • That's the second mention of FooBar200 I've heard in the past couple days and I'd never heard of it before. I used to really like winamp -- not only did it occupy a minimal amount of screen realestate but it was small, fast, and reliable. Of course, they've completely hosed it since then. Go AOL! Turns out FooBar2000 runs pretty well under wine. Still formulating an opinion of it.

        Thanks for the reaffirmation. You seem to be able to count on you for that ;) Part of the reason I brought the topic out was I was toying with the idea of writing a small, self-contained Perl mp3 player that implemented just enough of the X protocol to draw into a pixmap and get click events from its window (stealing code liberally from X11::Protocol). Maybe. Most of my code ideas never get coded, of course... but it would be nifty, IMO...
