Although the OP's assertion about the death of Windows is completely ridiculous, I must say that your post interests me the most.

I currently dual-boot between Windows and Linux, and I have had a very difficult time finding a music player that can compare to Winamp.

I've tried the more popular players like Amarok, XMMS/Beep/Audacious, Exaile, Rhythmbox, Songbird, Banshee, and (most recently) Listen. However, I haven't been able to find anything on par with Winamp, let alone "far better". I've been looking on and off for a while now, so hopefully you can point me in the right direction.

I've made a few posts on Linux forums, and so far, no one's been able to offer a Linux alternative that really satisfies me. The best I've been able to find is a nightly "unstable" version of Listen, but even this has no where near the features of Winamp.
