Damn. It’s been a good 15 years, but Winamp, our go-to desktop media player, is shutting down on 20 December.

A message on Winamp’s home page states that Winamp.com and all Winamp downloads will disappear on that date. It’s likely you’ll still be able to find a download elsewhere on the net, but it won’t receive any more updates from here on out.

We’re sad, and a little nostalgic, but to be honest, we were already thinking about changing our official pick to one of the other great, mature media players out there — so this will make the decision a little easier. Stay tuned for more, and feel free to reminisce with us below.
