i'd disagree about the ui efficiency since i've struggled to replicate code which works as well as winamp's classic skin drawing and if it ran fine without issues on my old P2 and the 486 i managed to get win95+winamp on then i'd have to point the blame at wine's implementation (not being in a position to try i can't do any tests on my similar spec system). it still draws back to why a win32 app is needed for linux when there's all of the native players already out there (and it's not like it's that hard to replicate the Winamp UI anyway) but that's for another time/place.
