    Winamp shutting down

    Ok so AOL is shutting down winamp December 20 this year.
    They are removing all downloads from there website and development and web services will stop.

    Imo this is fucking retarded as winamp has been one of the most popular media players for local files and web radio for 15 years.

    I can understand them shutting down. AOL isn't really making money from the project. they tried and failed.
    The thing im wondering is why the hell there not going opensource when there shutting down anyway.
