Yeah, I saw this about a week ago on Afterdawn.com.



I've probably been using WinAmp for as long as I've been using MP3's.  That would be 1997, but I don't know how old WinAmp actually is.



I also know that MusicMatch Jukebox was the software I got in 1997 to make MP3's.  :)  It was the first software I found where I didn't have to leave Windows and go to DOS to rip CD tracks to WAV's and then go back into Windows to use software to convert the WAV's to MP3's.  It was also the first software license I ever bought over the Internet.  I used that software until it no longer ran under Windows Vista, after it, too, like WinAmp, had been abandoned.



I guess WinAmp can also join Netscape along with MusicMatch in abandoned software I used to use.
