Winamp Bento

Recently Winamp unveiled a new beta version that includes a brand new skin. This new skin incorporates everything that Winamp has and also album artwork too. I gave it a try today and while I think it is an improvement, they still have a long way to go.

Maybe I’m just used to the stable betas of Google’s Gmail and various other software, but almost everything I did with this new Winamp crashed it. Playing a song with the Now Playing tab on crashed it. Clicking on a song in the Media Library crashed it. I’ll wait until it comes out of beta before I will do more testing on it. Right now I just can’t stand it.
