1.0 Beta 1 (Sep 17, 2003)
This is a comprehensive and easy-to-use tool, and presents sys-admins with an accessible representation of all key network data.
It does need the "Freeware" label changing - unless the developers give you the $300 for the licence as well.
0.7 RC8 (Aug 29, 2003)
foobar2k consistently improves in quality, features and stability with every release. RC8 is no exception. If you want an interface with pretty colours and flashing lights, you're invariably in for a disappointment when you download software that *doesn't* have these features.

I've not used ICQ's terrestrial software for years now, because of the bloat and advertising.
Here's a suggestion that could streamline the service further, and bring it back into the limelight; Google could buy ICQ and then integrate it with their Gmail service (should that ever be deemed safe for public release). You'd then, finally, have an open-access instant messaging system that could work with a freely available email system -- the best of both worlds, open source-based, and all for free*.
Maybe Google might announce a similar strategy next year, say, around the start of April...

I really hope Eolas get exactly what they deserve from persuing this contemptable effort at making some big money fast; absolutely nothing.
Whilst I appreciate that MSIE isn't the only choice for browsing the web, assuming Eolas win their case they could develop "a taste for blood" which might spur them on to going after as many other browser developers as possible.
It's difficult to see whether or not Eolas have considered the damage a victory would cause to the Internet community at large; assuming they did win and were to persue cases against e.g. Apple Computer (for their excellent Safari browser) or the Mozilla Foundation (with regards to the Mozilla Suite as well as the stand alone browser Firebird), I doubt very much that these two groups would have enough in the bank to pay up and still remain operational.
Let's hope that "prior art" (and a generous helping of common sense) saves the day.
