No, I haven't been pointed there but I'm also not a developer. Just a guy with lots of ideas.
Linux has mplayer and als VLC VideoLan (naming just 2). They are good enough for anyone who use Linux. If you think they aren't, well, help the developers. That's the spirit of open source - freedom of speech.

If you think Winamp could be easily ported, then you direly misunderstand its dependence on Windows APIs.

a linux version of the 2.x/5.x series will not happen, simple as that. as asellus points out, if things are that dire, people on linux should work on the players that are there (though i don't believe they are bad since i've used them happily myself).

at the end of the day, winamp is just a windows program that plays media and has it's own style of interface. remove that interface and to be honest you get the same as all the other players out there.

now the linux thing stops and back on to important things... like 5.04 and when that'll be...

Just another program that is massively extendable by plugins, fully skinnable, with badass features like the wicked ML.
