What skin do you use?

What skin should I use, and what skin(s) do you use, and why do you use the skins you use?

I generally don't use my skin much, meaning I just load what I want to listen to, then I barely see it so I do fine with the original winamp 2 skin, but I would like to hear your opinions and why.

I mostly use the skin I'm working on. I recently put a notifier in it and adapted it to suit my needs. It works great now, so I'll keep using the skin for a while. (The resizing part took me a while but works great now. )

It's called AudioRack, but I'm not sure if I'll ever release it because it's kinda user unfriendly... Everything is well tooltipped though.

A screenshot is attached.

Else I use my own Rectangular skin, Winamp Classic or the Winamp 3 skin.

Default white male skin, brown hair and eyes,

!????!

Oh sorry, you're talking about Winamp!

In that case, classic default at the moment.

Winamp classic default at the moment. I tend to check out new modern skins once in a while, but in the end always revert back to classic.
Good classic skins have a bigger chance to stay a bit longer...

Good Winamp plugins by Joonas, DrO and shaneh.

I been thinking of making a skin looking something similar to the audiorack, with slim wide modules... kinda suits my style.

I tried to make it slim, my first skin too (click the main area of my signature) but it didn't end up very slim lol

Single GUI beta.
having everything in one window is remarkably handy combined with the autohide toolbar.

Well, it depends on what I'm doing. If I'm doing some kind of typing or something, I use the winamp modern, stretched as wide as it goes, and in windowshade, and always on top at the top of my screen.
If I'm not doing anything else, I use Drone.
If I'm working on a skin, I use it.
If I'm looking at visualizations, or making new ones, I use Single Gui.
And, for general purpuse use, I just use winamp mordern, at regular size.

I love the freeform skins, right now I'm using Resurgence. Coz it has that notofier thing that pops up saying what I'm listening to.
I love that.
I'm also mad about moving bits and pieces. Like extending playlists, little lids covering little lights, that kinda crud.

I also used Pimeer first, but after I reinstalled windows I lost everything and the version I downloaded than just didn't work as smooth. My other regular skin was ZDL Audiophile Analog. Brilliant with all those lights and the spools turning and everything. Toobad it didn't have a notifier...

BTW, if I may ask, I see a whole lotta skins in here I ever encountered on the WinAmp skin pages, I thought I'd seen them all, so where can I find more?
