Well, for my Windows XP SP3 computer, hovering the mouse on the MP3 file name shows the bit rate with other file info. Failing that, right click the MP3 filename, click on "Properties," and then "Summary" (choose "Advanced" if not already there).

Since FLACs are lossless, I've never worried about the bitrate. I do know, however, that Winamp will show a bitrate when it plays a FLAC.
