winamp is closing

Hi.
This is a short posting it may make it to the personal blog.
According to several sites or at least enough sites online, winamp
the player that a lot of us use is dead.
Nullsoft is shutting down because of streaming and other cloud
services taking all its thunder.
And after 15 years winamp is due to shutdown next month.
The last fully free version is out for the next month from well today
till 20 december next month.
For those of us with large winamp collections and plugins its
probably going to be business as usual.
I know a portable winamp can be got at andrelouis.com/programs but
well that may be it.
there is also oldversion.
However without all its extentions etc winamp may become useless
anyway for any new users.
Not to mention internet radio has been controled from winamp.
aparently rumors are that vlc or fubar may take over.
Still it was bound to happen, winamp was free and did everything for
free, and well there are a lot of payed and free companies round.
the news was posted yesterday on enough sites to make it at least
plausable that winamp is shutting down.
thats all

    I did see that too. I didn\’t read the articles, but a number of them showed up through my twitter. Very interesting.
