Talking about the stardand GUIs: The widgets xfce created and used by itself is a big pain in ass - you can't even leave a dialog box with ESC or click ok by ENTER where there isn't any other button!

Maybe so, I dunno? But my point was that at least Xfmedia uses a relatively clear and clean interface, and not some all black and messy default skin of XMMS where you cannot even tell the buttons from the background... Cheesh, haven't the designers of such default GUIs/skins never heard anything about usability??

Beep media player is a version of Xmms and it spouses a brighter/easier on the eye theme. Many Xfce users like BMP.
