In the days before iTunes, Winamp was one of the best-known names in computer music. It was the preferred MP3 player for millions of people, and there were even some built-in radio stations that were integrated with it too. It was so popular that AOL bought Winamp for some $80 million a few years ago, presumably with the intention of turning it into what iTunes eventually became.
AOL has now abandoned its dreams. Winamp is no more. The web site is no longer accepting orders for Pro subscriptions. And in a couple of weeks' time, the official Winamp download sites will close. So if you still use Winamp and you want to ensure you have the latest version, head to www.winamp.com and download it now, before it's too late.
