I have not used WinAmp for many years now, I think that since YouTube appeared, all the top songs and everything that you need from any artist can be easily found there. I think it affected me a lot and now at least 90% of the music I like, I listen directly on YouTube, no other software involved for me ;)
Sure, you can still use it if you have it installed. There are also a few rumors that Microsoft may have purchased Winamp, but I’m not sure that they are accurate. Winamp actually isn’t all that bad, I would go so far as to say it beats iTunes as far as UI goes. Still, it’s been years since I last used it, so other than a little twinge of nostalgia, I doubt I would have even noticed it was disappearing.
