SalmonKing,

I'm sorry to hear that you are retiring SKJukebox... it is a wonderful product, probably the most popular acrade jukebox available.

I hope after a break you decide to return to SKJukebox... if not, let me at least say it was a job well done.

yes, it was a wonderfull project!!!

Even with  the minimal graphics, it was still looking very professional and have a good GUI.

I might even have used this software to (If I even created a jukebox cab), if it was not because I have my own software. I really like that way SK-Jukebox works.

Personally, I thought the minimalist approach had a lot to do with its appeal.  I've been tempted to make a WinCab skin that looks similar, but I'd hate to seem like I was trying to steal his users.  But although WinCab can look like SK Jukebox, it can't come close to touching its functionality.

This is why I doesn't like when a user creating skins, stolen from a competer without asking permission first. I remember one jukebox software author did that, and got this domain down for that reason. I have even critics about that, and can not see a reason doing it, even it a another fine software.

The charme about the original software is also allways better than  the clone.... Regaadless which software you use.

SK-Jukebox is also unique about the functionel of its interface: Simple GUI, but still very effective.
