The first ever screenshot taken of Towel. Towel is shown running on Matt's GNU/Linux box on the 11th of January 2001, using gtkmm-1.3.3 and gtk+-1.3.12. The version of Towel in this screenshot has just had the code implemented to actually play things, and despite having a proper playlist is only capable of playing the first track listed. Don't worry, it only looks horrible because Matt's gtk+ configuration isn't very well done (no antialiasing) and the default theme for 1.3.12 is horrible.
The music being played is in Ogg Vorbis format, in case anybody cared. However, the screenshot does show quite conclusively that Towel's support for reading title and artist information works.
