Has anyone ever ported WinAmp to FreeBSD or Linux?
I really prefer FreeBSD, but I am keeping windows on my machine too just for emergencies and winamp.
Sorry if this was

I might should have searched.

rather than port winamp, i just use xmms (http://www.xmms.org/). it's a clone written for *nix.

sounds as if winamp3 will be ported to *nix.

There are two choices:
winamp in wine (I haven't tried that one myslef but my friend chris says it works)

I think I might wait a little to see about the winamp 3. I don't have too much disk space on the computer that I want it on. So, i would like to stay away from wine, but the xmms and the winamp3 sound like great ideas. Thanks for the input.

In that case, how much memory does wine use? I mean compressed in *.rpm format its only 3.22megs. But I've never figured out how large it is once installed. Maybe I shouldn't be using rpm format anywayz. I like .deb (and apt-get) format better, but thats another topic. So is this whole post, but... um ok. I leave...
