Winamp Destined For Virtual ScrapheapHaving a good run from 1997 to the present, Winamp’s media playing software is destined for the virtual scrapheap as progress demands.

One visit to the Winamp website makes it clear: “ and associated web services will no longer be available past December 20, 2013.”

With the advent of Spotify, Apple Radio, and Pandora looming large in the streaming media service stakes — along with the deciding factor that all OS platforms already have a built-in media player — makes Winamp obsolete.
