Sad, but true. No More WinAmp.
Fifteen years. They’ve been kicking for fifteen years. I think to where I was fifteen years ago…. And realize that I was in college, basically just discovering everything the internet could be. I started college in the fall of 1996. WinAmp, if you do the math, came out in 1998.
I do remember using WinAmp religiously once I found it. It played all the music I had. It played the CDs I owned. It provided the fun visualizations that jumped in time with the music. It was my companion when I was doing school work. Or when I was just being dumb on the internet. Whatever. Hell. When I was – briefly – a DJ for an internet radio station, I used WinAmp to put my show together. I played the music through WinAmp.
It was – and still is – a great player for your music. iTunes? God, how I hate that program. It’s difficult and just plain annoying, really. Maybe I haven’t tried enough with it, but every time they update it, it changes, making you start over. Not to mention I have had serious issues with the damn thing. My laptop stopped connecting to the iTunes store. It did – and then it didn’t. (If one more person tells me to reinstall, I will cut a bitch. No lie.) It still doesn’t work on the laptop. It’s annoying as hell.
Anyway. I will miss it. It definitely will get updated before the site closes on December 20th. Need the last version.
Because it really whips the llama’s ass.
