Winamp is shutting down 20th December 2013

Winamp is undoubtedly one of those applications that remind you of what computers were and what computers have become. It's very unfortunate that Winamp is shutting down on the 20th December 2013. Definitely Winamp was and probably is one of the best media players out there. Definitely for sure, the most awesome feature for me was the fact that Winamp had really cool visualizations. Furthermore, it was the only media player that could read Variable Bit Rate (VBR) mp3 formats while Microsoft Media Player at the time couldn't. I still wish they were going to stop development and close down but I guess at the end of the day, its all about sustainability which co-relates a lot of the time to making money - and who buys media players nowadays? Not many people.

So Winamp and Nullsoft, I salute you for a really awesome app. It was a great journey.
