Audacious 3.10.1
Audacious is a lightweight audio player that focuses on doing one job well.

Do you remember the days when music players just played music? It seems that they now want to show video, display lyrics, sell you CDs or tell you what else you should be listening to. When you start up Audacious your first thought will be "this is XMMS" (or WinAmp if you only recently moved from Windows). Audacious is a fork of BMP which in turn built on XMMS, so this is no great surprise.

While XMMS had its faults, its small interface was perfect if you just want to have audio playing in the background while doing something else (like writing a review of an audio player) instead of having the music player be the main event.

Audacious is fast and lightweight, but it still handles the core responsibilities of an audio player. It plays all popular formats, including MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, WAV, WMA, MIDI and a variety of MOD formats. IT also handles playlists in the standard WinAmp format, as used by just about everything. Plugins enable you to add features, like listening to Last.fm streams, adding visualisations, displaying the current track on an OSD, or shrinking everything down to an icon in the system tray.

Whether you are using a netbook or just don't want your audio to take over your computer just to play background music, Audacious is an excellent choice of player.

What's new in 3.10.1? See the changelog.

Verdict:

 Audacious does what a music player should, plays music and keeps out of the way.

On extraction of the zip file I can see nothing that will run this program! Where is the .exe file?

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
