I agree that the last few generations of users (of almost everything) have been conditioned for an 'out-of-the-box' experience only. That's why they never look at, or for, the options. This is a shame, especially for Winamp, imo.

It also doesn't help to have so much obsolete stuff on the main site. Downloading and installing stuff that doesn't work, is a big turnoff. But, that's another issue.

That's why I said it should be a separate paid job/task for these people. But if management doesn't think its worthy of consideration, then nothing will be done. Another shame.

And I'm not knocking what you official devs do. You manage to get a hell of a lot done anyway, under the circumstances.
