After the arrival of Winamp in 1990’s online music has changed quite a bit and most of users managed their musical list by this software.
“There’s no reason that Winamp couldn’t be in the position that iTunes is in today if not for a few layers of mismanagement by AOL that started immediately upon acquisition,” Rob Lord, the first hire and first general manager of Winamp, told Ars in 2012. Arstechnica.com reports.
Anyway users are going to lose one of the old favorite music software system. Winamp’s web services will shut down on December 20 and the desktop player will no longer be available for download.
