Another vote here for 1by1 - together with Sharepod for loading up my Ipod - two small, resource friendly programs that avoid the bloat of Itunes

Rockbox on my 5.5g 80gb ipod...
but for PC, I only use Foobar2000. There seems to be nothing this player can not do once configured correctly for your needs and wants.

Using MusikCube here. Very lightweight, custom and dynamic playlists, it has all I could want in a music player.
It's also skinnable which is a bonus.

Aha! Finally I remembered what I used to use on my Pentium II IBM Thinkpad:

Coolplayer w/ Sputnik Skin

P.S. Just tried it out on the Mini 9 and it works great! I'm pretty impressed. Besides a few hiccups every few mins that seemed like millisecond burps, it worked adequately! I was able to browse the web and play NES/SNES/N64 games without problems.

it looks so bland so I don't want to play my music in it. I'll only be playing my MP3s mostly.

I'm looking at WinAmp right now, but I'm also considering other choices. So, let me know.
Such a small screen, FOOBAR PLAYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cover flow is pretty cool, for those of us who fondly remember flipping through our record collection for something to throw on the turntable back in the 1970s.
