grimmie, grimmie, grimmie...to shame
The eject function is for people who have their pc a tad bit too far away for them to reach it quickly...another thing, my eject button is a little too hard to push, but my mouse or keyboard buttons/keys aren't. One last thing, it is good when you have like a crappy 100 mhz pc, cause winamp plays a little slower (on those) when the cd is spinning [insert sound bite "I'm spinning! I'm spinning!" from the Frog Blender thing by JoeCartoon], while if the cd is ejected, it isn't...so if you have a big app open, and it'll only run if the cd isn't playing, just hit like ALT+E or something. That's my 4 cents worth!
