don't get me wrong ... i love fb2k!

i just happen to be a big fan of open source software as well ... so my question is:
is there a similar program to foobar that is open source?
are ther plans to make foobar open source?

thanks for the following discourse!

I tried both and I was quite impressed with VUPlayer. Foobar, of course, has much more functionality, but as far as as being a non-skinned player VU has some mature features. Musik didn't impress me as much, especially as most of my music is encoded using AAC, which meant I was only able to play about 10 songs on it. My personal attitude toward software (and most other things) is "to each his own," so if someone likes a particular product that doesn't really do it for me, fine. Not being a fan of skinned applications, I'm just happy to see there are other non-skinned players being developed.
