Nowadays I'd rather point such people at Audacious (package "audacious"
for Fedora and corresponding add-on packages at rpmfusion.org).

Version 1.4.5 is kind of old.

The current version  is: 1.5.1 (released May 23, 2008).

If one uses the same skin, it is difficult to distinguish (visually) audacious from xmms,
and audacious eats a lot more of CPU cycles.

Using top, in a quadcore Q6600 (4GB ram), xmms eats in the average 8% (peek of 12%) of CPU and audacious 14% (peek of 21%), both with the pulse plugin.
