    Cool! I've been using it for about a year now and it's reliable and doesn't crash, which is more than I can say for Windows Media Player...

    Anyone heard of AIMP? I think it's the best player for the MP3 format.

    Too bad, WinAMP used to be cool it is a great player. There are bunches of WinAMP remote apps in the Apple Store, I use one of them.

    Actually yeah, I use AIMP and I think it's great.

    I used Winamp as well. Kind of sad to see it go.

    Wait, what? I just did a search and some sites are saying it's been extended past its deadline. I mean, I still have it installed and it seems to run, but when I tried it the other day the streaming Internet radio wasn't working. What exactly is going on with it?
