    Default Winamp might be killed.

    AOL has announced that they will no longer develop and support Winamp, first released in 1997. A petition has been made, asking AOL to opon the source code. That would be the best option, in my opinion. There is however, a rumour that Microsoft shall buy Winamp.

    I have not used not used Winamp for six years, when I stopped using Microsoft Windows. But it was by far the best music player I ever found for Windows.

    Winamp was great, but I started having problems with it after I got Windows 7. So I replaced it with Media Monkey, which is pretty good. It crashes sometimes, but not nearly as often as Winamp did. And it has some relatively similar sorting and tagging stuff. But I still thought Winamp was the best before it got all goofy for me. It'd be nice if AOL made the source public, and maybe someday I'd end up using it again. I had no idea that was an AOL product, though... shocked that AOL managed to make something so good.

    Technically they bought it after someone else made it.

    Been using Winamp since 2003 or so. On XP and 7. I don't recall it ever crashing or stopping. I've never actually used another player. I haven't updated in 5 years though, so even if they cancel it, I'm safe

    That's highly possible. I refuse to update even now, when I know no new version will ever come out.

    By the way, I can't imagine Microsoft buying Winamp... the usership must be extremely low these days, so I can't see how it could be profitable for them. But I guess you never know. Maybe it has more users than I think, or maybe Microsoft could find a way to profit from it.

    Jojan, which music player do you use now?
