    Ok i have a challenge

    So my friend as i was been a windows user for all life..
    I recently have converted and never going back.

    I know once he comes over and use's it he will be converted.
    but the biggest draw back at this stage is his music program.

    if i can't find him a good music software compared to WINAMP.
    He wont convert.

    Must play FLAC

    Hates itunes.. as most of us do to some extent.

    So please give us some ideas.

    HEre is a snap shot of how he has his layout.

    Nothing we have found works the same way has the same control etc.
    there is a basic winamp for mac but it's crap and basic.

    In the core of a black hole.
    Winamp in a Virtual Machine might be a solution, like in parallels.

    You can try that on your machine first, if it works well you have a solution.

    Convert the FLAC to ALAC using XLD. iTunes can then play or AirPlay it.
    iTunes isn't a bad bit of software on the Mac, on a PC it's bog slow & awful.
    ALAC can be converted back to FLAC using XLD too.
