One place I do tech work for have POS's that require Net access because part of the services link into API's for UPS, FexEx, and USPS for realtime transactions. The POS software and shipping software get updates regularly, whether it be bug fixes, feature improvements, or shipping rates updates. The POS, also, can links into a noreply email to send people invoices and tracking. Safe guards: being placed on a separate isolated network from the main one, strict firewall settings, intrusion detection, and a good host file. CCs are not processed on them at all, since there are handled by dedicated machines from merchant services on a dedicated landline.

Foobar2000 runs perfectly under WINE on Linux and OS X. I have been using it for years without any problems. So far, the only flaw I have found is that it does not find new music placed into your media folder after it finishes scanning for new files during start-up, so you have to restart the thing to help it find music just added.

Foobar2000 has never locked up on me and I have a huge collection, which is a mix of mp3, ogg, and flac files whether the audio is stored on a local Seagate Hybrid Drive and from a mirrored copy on a NAS, but I mostly use it on Linux and OS X with the help of WINE. Winamp use to be a fast lightweight program, but it is not, while Foobar2000 still is, so maybe the problem you had was caused by one of add-on extension. I have had that happen with Firefox and Chrome maybe it completely unresponsive or sluggish, so it stands to reason this could also occur with Foobar2000.
