6 reasons we’ll miss Winamp
Good night, sweet prince.
After 15 years, Winamp—arguably the first dominant desktop mp3 player—has announced that it's ceasing operations. (We can hear the punchline already: “Winamp still exists?”) And although most of us haven't used the damn program in over a decade, those who've used it will always cherish it deeply. Not because of its functionality. Not because of its design. Not because of its former dominance.
It’s because as far as mp3 players go, Winamp: You were our first.
Anybody who still wants Winamp (especially the pro version) has until the 20th to get it; it stops being issues on that day.
