It takes any of the classic WinAmp skins, so I guess you have your
pick :P I hate skins myself, but I use maXMMS (available on the xmms
site). Their default skin is bad, and I think is going to be replaced.

You might want to bump up the font sizes on the Preferences menu as
well. That helps me to see what's going on.

I'm not much of a graphical desktop person either. People just don't
understand that a desktop is for placing windows on it, and not for
placing a bunch of images and icons on the desktop (/me runs since I
just insulted 99% of users--no offense meant).

Heh, and why would I want transparent windows when the purpose of a
window on a desktop is to look at it?

I just don't understand!
