I think fb2k looks too basic by default and is hard to skin/style, Was: Foobar still in the 90's

Hithere,

Today I gave Foobar a shot, intending to divorce from Winamp after a very long and happy marriage.
After hearing some positive feedback about Foobar I gave it a try, but to be honest, I am quiet astounded to see that Foobar is graphically still in the 90's, and so is the way to get usable skins (to make the experience a little more apealing and usable) to work.

O.k. flame me to hell with probably a lot of valid arguments and opinions, but I can't imagine I am the only one looking for a Winamp of the 21st century, and will for these reasons not choose Foobar as a successor.

Of course you are trolling or did you write the same posting in the forums of other players too. You are able to know that foobar2000 is using the windows theme of the os on which it is running: is windows 7 looking like the 90s for you? Probably yes! Are the most programs under Mac or Linux looking for you like stone age just because they us the os theme and not some shitty selfcreated ui? Probably yes! I really don't care about your opinion but why do you think it could be an interesting message that you are going to stick with media monkey and its crappy user interface that indeed look cumbersome like nothing else? If you don't like to use foobar2000 so that's ok because it was not written for you!

That's a lot of words (from a seemingly chaotic, and not very open mind) for somebody who doesn't care about my opinion.
