I use mostly use xmms but I actually refuse to vote for it this year. It's gotten its clock cleaned by Winamp 2.9x and 5.x and needs to get on the ball with splitting the backend and UI and upgrading the UI at the same time. I think losing the award would be... invigorating. (If they care.) It's still great, but it needs to be greater.
There's all kinds of Linux GUI apps that are starting to take the lead away from xmms, but I can't think of all of them - mostly Knome apps.
Oh yeah - and that fork BMP. And zinf, though it seemed kinda dead last I saw.
uhh... I strongly agree that the audio creation/editing/manipulation apps should be separate from the player apps. Same thing for video. Audacity and Cinelerra are in a league separate from xmms and xine. So I can't vote for beep, my new favorite, xmms is getting on my nerves. I don't care if there's no plugins...
