Winamp Pro or Winamp Amature?

What winamp do you use? Pro or 'amature' (not pro)

/edit
I use amature.

Amature here. What were the features of pro again? Faster CD burning or something? I don't really need Winamp for that.

I'm not too clear on the status of Winamp... like, AOL own it don't they? I wouldn't want to give them any dough. Using and talking about an AOL product is bad enough for me.

If Winamp was an indie company then I wouldn't mind bunging the developers a few quid. Otherwise there's no chance of me parting with cash for it..

The only reason I bought pro was because I wanted to respect those who create great things, such as Winamp.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Pro fee goes to licensing the sonic engine right?

I could've sworn it was the encoder for burning mp3s or ripping into mp3s or something.

Either way, I felt I contributed

I use the "Full, Free" version. 5.08e. I don't see "amature" tagged onto it.

Non-pro, usually, as I don't use Winamp to rip/encode.
