    It's a really sad tale.....
    I loved it so much...

    But I think that Winamp has reached the saturation point of it's perfection...
    So no more updates are required...
    The v5 will rule for a long long time....

    Hmm, Winamp 5.05 is 99.98 % perfect, there is hardly any bug noticable , this version will be compatible & good, dam hard to beat for a long time

    I already gave this news in the confrence last nite, neyway, good to see here

    However, is there a true winamp alternative in terms of Skinning & memory usage

    right said... but with "classic" skin.... still lotta skin crash...

    Winamp is the playa who revolutionized skinning... in fact the first thing get skinned was I think Winamp... the grand grand father of all GUI eye candy we see today.... lol

    I think Winamp will live... forever :)

    Have tried a lot of players, but nothing seemed close enough to stand up to good old Winamp! The news is a blow for music lovers!
