Linux I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista. I hardly know where to start. And if I hadn't flown into a high-minded anti-Microsoft, down-with-Bill-Gates fury at the start of this year, would I ever have stumbled upon ZenWalk? I doubt it.

Ever hear of DistroWatch?

Now, a comment on the actual article (about Audacious):

I'm not sure, but I have a feeling the writer just stuck with the default skin (most likely), or is just not into the Winamp-style look to begin with. Personally, I love it--it's my favorite app--considering I've been using Winamp in Windows since around 1997, and I prefer its simplicity over a full-blown media library-style program. If there were no Audacious, my switch to Linux would've been much harder.

Its default skin in Zenwalk isn't too good though; in fact, I barely remember what it looks like (too bright, white and plain, that's all I remember). I changed it a long time ago (that collection I built up over the years in Windows still comes in handy). But one thing's for sure: the skin "ArcticAMP" looks daaamn good, nice and clean, good colors, and has been my choice for at least half a year. Looks great with the default Zenwalk theme, although I've customized my entire Xfce theme.

Anyone who wants to check out ArcticAMP, here's a link:
