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: “Winamp.com 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.
