Somehow, skinning hasn't hurt WinAmp any. There are *no* skins for WinAmp that make it actually look like a real Windows app. Even the "Windows 95" and "98" skins are crude hacks, and don't really fit in with other parts.

I agree with you, however, that reporting and fixing bugs would be a whle lot more productive.
