Conclusion to Winamp 5

Well, it looks exactly the same as Winamp 2. Exactly the same.
But, there are subtle differences. Looks like there will be a lot of integration with Windows XP as it has support for “Desktop Alpha Blending”.
Also it carries CD Ripping support, everything else is bog standard, nothing new. But, it is a very early Alpha, only a few weeks into development.
Will definately see some major changes over the next few months.
Does anyone remember how long Winamp3 was in development? A long time, around a year I think. They didn’t half carry that one on, for what, in my opinion turned out to be an inferior product. But, hell.
Damn AOL for taking everything over.
