Ctrl-Alt-Shift N-U-L-L-S-O-F-T also works. In my Sailor Moon skins, I included an approximate translation of their Japanese names.

Actually, if you're a skin designer, you'll see that in the titlebar.bmp file, there's 6 bars: 2 top = active and inactive normal, 2 middle = active and inactive winshade, and 2 bottom = active and inactive hidden bars (Llama's ass). You can make you're own hidden sentences, or images. Whatever you want.

Just thought I'd post on a few different skins that change with the Llama egg active: AmpFlux SE 2.1: Title bar changes to "Ampflux SE NO SOUND" ChromoSla: "W I N A M P" disappears. MetAMPmorphosis: Title bar changes a shade darker. (Probably unintentional) PepsiAmp 2: Changes title bar to "Pepsi Amp 2 - www.easyvb.com" when active, and "PEPSI AMP 2 RE-Created by Jason" when inactive. Cold Fusion 2.02: Changes to "SYRI Graphic and Web Design" when acitve, and "http://members.xoom.com/SyRi" when inactive. (SYRI logo is split over both states) Fusion AmpDeck 2: A set of eyes appear above the viz. Ampizer Elite: Adds "By MATDesign" beside skin name. SpyAmp 4.0: Changes title bar to clutterbar. (Also probably unintentional) Cold Fusion: Changes from "Cold Fusion" to just "Fusion", Places a couple of cute characters in the title bar and adds the line, "Don't you love new toys? :)" Digital 2-23: Changes to a two-leveled plug for Guelph Digital (uses both active and inactive states) and gives the author's E-Mail address. Creative Live: Changes to "The Meaning of Live by Freek" TargetAmp: Changes to "Done By X-Jedi Cyberflame" and gives his E-Mail in the inactive state. BLUE SOUND: Plugs author's website. Monkey Radio: Adds "Raj.l/0 in 2000" Marbles_BG: Changes title bar permanently to inactive. (Probably unintentional) Portal: Two-tiered "Gener8ed (C) 2000" logo. Cha0tik Nature: Changes to some funky texture. (Probably left there from a base skin or something) 3D_Amp - Cool Blue: "It Really Whips the Llama's Ass" in the skin style. Sonika: Another Regener8ed logo. Killahill 1.0 Upgrade: Gets rid of the word "Winamp" in the title bar.

In WinAmp 5.07 on the Modern skin, it makes the main window fade to the beat of the song that's playing. It's actually really neat.

I'm new to Easter eggs, so I am not sure if this qualifies, but I noticed in my new 2.7 that, after you do the N-u-l[esc]-l[esc]-s-o-f-t and get the new titlebar, if you play the demo.mp3 which actually says this, the title bar automatically reverts back to 'WINAMP' at the end of the song. I checked with other songs, and they did not do this. Did I find my first Easter egg? :)

Here are a few more from my personal collection of skins: Zeus_v2_anoxia skin goes from "ZEUS" to "amo2000" OmegaRed skin's title bar shrinks a little, but nothing new appears. FlameBOT skin's title bar does much the same thing as OmegaRed's. blackdawn10 skin does exactly the same thing as the . link2pst skin goes from "Winamp" to a pic ure of Zelda's Link and "WANTED! This criminal kidnapped Zelda" The_Silence skin goes from "THE SILENCE" to the bottom half reading "THE SILENCE" and the top half being the bottom of the message "CREATED BY THE SILENCE". In addition to this, I found that by clicking on the link2pst skin, the message further changes to just a picture of link and "WANTED!". Likewise, clicking on the The_Silence skin changes the top half to be the top half of the message "CREATED BY THE SILENCE". I suggest clicking on the title bars after doing this trick to see what (if anything) it changes into.

I went to the Nullsoft Developer network, and I found some pretty interesting stuff. Winamp Skins | Titlebar.bmp Titlebar.bmp provides the title bars for the all the various skinned windows of Winamp. The first of the bars are the graphics for Winamp's main window when that window has focus (the current window on your desktop is said to have the 'focus', and on that window the currently selected control also has the 'focus'). The second bar is the main window's title bar when it does not have the focus. The third and fourth bars provide the graphics for Winamp running in Window Shade mode. The fifth and sixth bars are special. They provide the graphics for the title bar when the Winamp Easter Egg is active. (Easter Eggs are usually useless aspects of a piece of software that the software developers include as a joke or to give credit to something. It's just the programmers trying to have a little fun. Do not worry about these last two bars for now.)

Does anyone know what's meant by "the duck is coming?" If you watch the credits in 2.666, it says, "Thanks to: the Silo Corp (the duck is coming.)"

Also, after considering Johnny Virgil's observation, I went through all my skins. I found that the AMD_Thunderbird_Version_1.wsz states, "it really whips pentium's ass" and the MooAMP_WS_25.wsz bullishly announces it "whips winamp's ass!" (oh boy, a bullfight between a cow and a llama??!) just as in the base skin, if you play the demo.mp3, it changes back. Does this mean the llama spits back? LoL

Dude, if you just download winamp and play the demo track it says, "Winamp, it really whips the llamas ass." And the opening logo has a silhouette of a llama.
