    linux ports to windows?

    i am looking for a good media player for my netbook i would prefer to use rhythmbox or banshee so i can subscribe to podcasts but neither seem to have a windows version. is there something similar for windows that is lightweigh enough to run on a netbook that is free and open source?

    Take a look at Songbird, it's made by Mozilla.

    Amarok can be built on windows..but its fun, fun fun! (yeah, 'fun' meaning 'total pain..and I said it 3 times which give you an idea of how much of a pain). Almost any linux program can be used under windows, if you dont mind doing a lot of playing around, and dont mind the extra CPU use.

    VLC is probably a good choice. At least there is a windows native version. When exaile gets a windows port (coming in 0.3.1) it might be worth a shot, but thats still a work in progress. All the other media players I've used that have linux and windows versions are pretty heavy, not really good for a netbook IMO.

    I'd recommend foobar2000 and the 'podcatcher' plugin. Very light, very powerful. Its free, but sorry, not open source (but really, its worth a look, its a great media player).

    Nice idea, but too heavy for a netbook. IMO anyway, maybe the OP has different ideas.
