    Rightclick on menu ro playback- conntrols bar and uncheck "lock layout"
    Then you can uncheck elements you don't wanna use, in our case that would be context. Also on each removable widget there are two buttons, one to undock it and other to close widgets.
    Also you can drag applets arount to create your own layout, just like yo can do it with panels in Dolphin
    Playback bar is movable, 'tho you can't remove it (for obvious reason)

    Go to the main menu bar and click on View -> Lock Layout to unlock the layout. Then there should be a title bar with an [x] button on the top-right of the context window. Click on it to close it and lock the layout again with View -> Lock Layout.

    Thank you.
    As qmmp does as well

    You mean what I have said about the skins? I know that, sorry for my English. The "also" was in response to Pawlerson. I meant Audacious uses Winamp skins too, as does qmmp (or It's WinAMP like Linux too).
    Anyway, I'll try qmmp when I have a little more time.

    The question was solely about the lyrics widget and while it was initially not possible to remove the widget container in the middle, it was possible to add and remove individual widgets. Just compare the two screenshots on http://amarok.kde.org/en/releases/2.0 the lyrics widget is replaced by the Magnatune widget in the second one.

    I removed it. I'm not adverse to it, it's just, like you said, sort of horrible and handles fonts really bad, so it ends up a hot mess 90% of the time. If they overhauled how it looks, I'd use it. Actually I'd prefer they split the individual widgets into separate panes instead of trying to cram everything together. I like the idea a lot, it's just not attractive as it is right now.
