Why do so many people on this site seem to chose Foobar over Winamp?

Foobar user here. There are no SQ differences between the two. Just the feature set and learning curve (foobar being harder up until the latest version). I started out as a winamp user but fb2k pulled me with its library management (tagging, renaming, moving files) and a few DSPs that are exclusive to it.
I wanted a lightweight music player (not a complete media player) and foobar (with default UI) fit the bill better than winamp.
Even dabbled with musikcube in my search for the above but its features were lacking compared to foobar.
Forgive what is probably a pretty dumb question (and a mild digression from the topic), but your comment about keeping the EQ flat brought to mind something that I've been curious about. Simply this: Is keeping the EQ flat the same as not using an EQ at all? I'm pretty sure it is, but I just wanted to hear it from someone else. Thanks.
