iTunes, uTunes

I've been using (the Windows version of) iTunes and I'm growing fond of one of the side effects of its design:  If you're playing tracks out of your library, which is what it does if you just poke at it (I don't read manuals, let alone follow instructions), it just keeps playing whatever's next on the list as it's currently sorted.  This is such a great improvement over my old default (forgetting I was listening to music at all until hours after it's stopped) that I've mostly quit using iTunes's playlist feature (File|New playlist, then double-click on the playlist that's created).

Also of interest is something I recommend to anyone who uses Microsoft Windows: use a separate networked PC to play music or other media.  Multitasking while producing sound without skipping is too much to ask of any Windows PC I've ever met.  But then, I ask a lot of my computers.  They crash a lot doing (two dozen or more interspersed) things I think are perfectly reasonable.
