April 20th and 21th. Pretty easy to spot for the people with mainstream color vision.
That said: The overall color theme of that GUI ist one of the most ugliest beasts i've ever seen (including game GUIs - and i did use a C64 for gaming back then).

It's a skin. The user cannot only choose a skin, but can also create his/her own skin. Sort of like WinAmp if that means anything to you (and you are over 30). So, you could also have black & white skinned buttons with gray backgrounds and such if you don't want to see any colours.

Now that changes a lot: Skins are generally more ugly and the uglyness score is the difference between the median unglyness and the uglyness of the skin to score. So as a skin, it jumps up a category. Sadly you missed the finals for the most uglyest skin due to that. But you could apply again with another skin.
:P

Yes, Winamp was my favorite music player for quite a while (most of that time it also was my only media player). It was great and i also made a simplistic gray skin for it back then. But there are more comfortable and versatile alternatives now. On Windows i use the MPC-HC that is included in the CCCP and on Linux i use SMPlayer.
