I stopped using Winamp because of the direction it too when it was taken over by AOL.
Yeah, pretty much since Justin Frankel left the company development has been 0. That may sound unfair to the dev's that are still working on the software, but in all honesty, not 1 feature has been added that benefits me personally.
And the installer has become a massive headache as you have to deselect all the stuff AOL tries to install.
That said, I sitll haven't found a better music player...
