XMMS, the Winamp for X-Windows...

XMMS stands for the X Multimedia System. It was formerly called X11amp. It has much the same look and feel of winamp for you windows users, and plays pretty much the same files. Its the de-facto standard for playing mp3s under Linux, and also has plugin support. Go check out the new QSound iq plugin that was just recently released, and read about their plugin contest!!! On a side note, running 'esd' and 'extace' can also be a means of looking at kewl waveforms of what you're playing.
