    I came across this Hacker News post about the "Winamp Skin Museum" (absolutely worth a click) and did some digging and found that the old Winamp player is maintained as a web app and electron app. It might be worth your time to dig up some old songs and embrace nostalgia.

      Audacious is also a great drop in replacement on Linux (and also potentially Windows, though you can still use the old versions on it) that's fully compatible with Winamp 2 skins and also uses very little CPU and memory.
