FFR! Foobar Fucking Rocks

I’ve known about Winamp’s archenemy (or arch-competitor), Foobar 2000^, for many years. I had the program installed alongside Winamp while I was organizing my music collection, because it had one feature Winamp didn’t: a command to show me the average bitrate of more songs (and I include that number in an album’s folder name).

Other than that, I didn’t use it… up until about two months ago, when my hate for Winamp reached the boiling point. I am like that. Loyal to the software I use and ignoring its various shortcomings due to that loyalty. Winamp started to randomly crash on enqueuing songs from Explorer/Total Commander ever since version 5 dot fuck-knows-what. Ironically, I also bought the Professional edition about a year prior to that. I valiantly endured it for about two years…
