Looking for a skin

My mother hates WMP and like me has always used Winamp, I'm looking for a modern skin for her that is:

-Easy to use and not confusing
-Stylish but not hard too see/hard on the eyes
-with not a lot of "special features" or things that require setup on start up

Does anyone know anything that would work?

(The bigger the buttons the better)
I love bugging her about "getting old"

What's up with good old winamp modern or bento?

Both functional, both easy to use.

Check this one out ... I posted a pic of it somewhere, but I can't find it.

Anyway, I use this on a 7 inch touch screen. As the skin is specifically designed for that, the buttons are large and the skin is very simply.

To give credit where it is due, I got it from here: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/soft...a-release.html.

Screen shots and a download link that is indeed still working. I'll save space on the boards and not attach it anymore.

@Jones, My mother finds both a bit confusing.

@fc*uk Thanks! If I can find any others I'll probably use that one... Or do what I swore I'd never do again!

Oh what a cruel joke... I remember using that as a template for my early "modern" skins...

SEX APPEAL UP IN HERE!

Maybe your mom will like this one
http://www.winamp.com/skins/details/143975

Sometime this year there will be skins using the cpro sui area with other button/slider layouts (so the buttons can be bigger for example).. but atm only cool skin I can think of with big button and easy to use is the skin my martin.deimos:

1010 Fullscreen

ClassicPro© v2.01 : This plugin allows you to use cPro skins in Winamp. ClassicPro skins are all SUI skins and loads very quickly. ClassicPro skins is even easier to skin than Winamp Classic skins. A new layout have been added since version 2.
