*coughs* This is getting a little repetitive now, but foobar2000 does that too. smile.gif I'm not sure about the robustness of the

I'm not gonna use Foobar, if for no other reason than the fanaticism surounding it. That alone is reason enough for sane people to stay away from it. If it takes that much effort to try and talk people into using it, then I want nothing to do with it.

Besides, I'm not looking for a player too. I was just looking for a nice simple compare tool. Preferably a stand alone program, but if EAC can do it, then great.

compared to i.e. BeOS linux is very popular. So lets take your analogy:

WTF! Who is talking about BeOS? I'm comparing Windows to Linux! And doing an analogy.

Winamp is the mainstream player - the one i do think most do use. Windows is the mainstream OS.
Foobar is also popular but not as much as winamp, and its very linux-like. Similiar to linux, its the "runner-up", and similiar to linux, it can do things better than windows BUT its more difficult to setup and configure.

OK, you are saying that, analogically, Foobar is better than Winamp but harder to configure. BTW, I didn't even mention winamp in my first post.

WTF does this have to do with popularity vs. having zealots trying to force their preferences on you???

actually, IMHO you've given an analogy which is a good example of the opposite wink.gif

Might be, but I'm sure as hell that your post didn't help clarify this "opposite". Au contraire.
