Death Knell Sounds for Nullsoft, Winamp

 

The last members of the original Winamp team have said goodbye to AOL and the door has all but shut on the Nullsoft era, BetaNews has learned.

 

This is indeed sad news, Winamp is bar none the best music player. I've been using it for years and will probably continue to use it for years to come.

Good ol' Winamp. I ain't changing it to any other music player.

 

I think it's time to update to the latest version and then create a shine on my comp.

One more reason to hate AOL, as if the rest of the internet needs anymore. Anyone else remember when they bought up the best damn instant messenger on the net, Mirabilis' ICQ? It wasn't long before that was destroyed also. An interesting quote:

"In addition to its international reach, ICQ has tremendous appeal among young, technically sophisticated Web users and there is remarkably little overlap with AOL."

-America Online President and Chief Operating Officer Bob Pittman

 

Winamp was getting bloaty in its later forms, maybe it was time for it to go. The question now is, what's next? Someone with enough programming experience will be angry at its demise. We can only hope.
