It would be difficult to imagine typical computer workplace without background music. In previous years WinAmp was number one choice for music playback. These days WinAmp became bloated. Windows Media Player is also hungry for for resources and has too many features that are useless for most people.
Luckily there is a modern age alternative for WinAmp. It is called Foobar2000.
Foobar2000 is simple and neat media player. It has support for many various formats plus features can be extended through various plugins.
Another advantage of Foobar2000 is that it is really lightweight and simple to use.
Recently Foobar2000 reached version 0.9.4.1 . Changelog is available here.
