Although with that said I've just installed the Android version of the app, and if you go to the Winamp Store it says that it isn't available. So it doesn't look possible to upgrade to the pro version, even if you want to. :/

Maybe the rumours are true and MS are buying Winamp. Start looking forward to Winamp 6.0 ModernUI edition.

 

I'd give it a try!

Something in the back of my head has told me it won't be shut down today since the announcement.

You can't buy a pro license and they're not giving out a free pro license. I think it will stick around in some form.

I'm taking it as a sign that the rumours about Winamp being bought may be true. I've gone and downloaded the installers though, just to be on the safe side. :laugh:

Even if they were to shut down the site, third party sites would still have the installers just like with Netscape. Also, It would be good if the rumours were true. :)

 

Maybe the rumours are true and MS are buying Winamp. Start looking forward to Winamp 6.0 ModernUI edition.

That would be interesting, but since Microsoft already has a music app they will likely just integrate some of Winamp's features into it.

My bet? Apple will buy Winamp and not MS. iTunes gonna be available only for MAC, Winamp will integrate with Apple store and will be available for Windows only WIN(Amp).

I really doubt that. They're not going to dump their existing client for Winamp. That would be quite a change for their users as well.

Or they could just let Winamp die off.  Why would they want it?
