Given that the some of the "bloatware" OS's provided by Micros**t over the past few years have been so fragile that they fall over and die if looked at the wrong way, IMHO, it makes sense to use the minimum required to get the job done.Bigdog wrote:What's the big deal about a few free add ons?
I'm hoping that I can run a karaoke from Linux and migrate away from MS, altogether.
However, to be fair, both Karma and Justkaraoke appear to run very well on Windows 7.
Apart from anything else, I believe even S 'n D accept that it's better to use an earlier version of Winamp, as the newer versions "sometimes" don't play "nice" with the plugins.
Admittedly, I've never had an issue with this but 1) I have an earlier version of S 'n D as, like yourself, I don't like the layout of the newer versions and 2) have consistently saved earlier copies of Winamp, "just in case"
However, there are better and cheaper programs out there and I think S 'n D are going to have to seriously rethink their "1 PC only" policy or they will ultimately lose out to the rest.
I used to recommend S 'n D, as a matter of course but now I tell people to avoid it like the plague.
