Tech nostalgia is generally a bit tragic, but
Remember running that on Windows 95...
i still use winamp all the time because it's so easy to play untagged mp3s, any file type and retain a playlist.
just no more updates
I thought they closed it down before and people just kept making it.
I'm hoping they'll put the code out into the community if they can't keep going so it'll still be running.
but winamp was the first and is an excellent no-BS music player. It is the only one I use on my phone. It will still work, just no more updates so it isn't going to disappear forever.
The Beatles don't go under T.
For that reason I never used it and never will.
Although I strip out all the "the"s anyway so it lists properly in windows generally anyway.
but I'm sure some stand alone EXE installs will remain on the internets, but as for the android version I'm going to assume thats destined to just vanish.
What does everyone else use?
Maybe Apple will make iTunes Lite that just does what you need it to do and doesn't fuck your machine up.
it's not the best at local library organizing, in fact it's down right infuriating at times, however I like shoving everything I own in my overall library along with my virtual library and hitting the random button so it suits my wants/needs more than any other software out there at the moment.
Before then I used Foobar, before that iTunes and before that Winamp.
iTunes still ranks among the most hopeless pieces of software I have ever used and was just the first thing experienced that begun my turn against Apple.
Been using this software for about 10 years. It handles music, video and photos but there's a free music only version (Media Jukebox). Can't recommend it enough especially like its flexibility that allows you to customise the way your music is organised, displayed etc. Great smartlist functionality too. Plus it works with iPod Classics. I never need go near iTunes.
I still use WinAmp quite extensively for making mixes/playlists, in fact I think everyone of my DiS mixtapes was compiled on WinAmp.
