Winamp is Shutting Down

AOL, a big company who have acquired Nullsoft, parent company of a music service Winamp in 1999 has made a big decision by shutting down Winamp on December 20, 2013. This means that after that date, there will be no more Winamp releases and it will be history.

Just before the final date, Winamp has managed to release Winamp 5.66 and i guess this will be their final release before shutting down.

Winamp was one of my favorite multimedia player since i used computer back in junior high school. I followed it's development from winamp 2, 3, and lastly 5. It was a great software, easy to use, and it just worked. I guess it's time to say good bye to all of those and switch to other application that does the same thing.
