Usually I would agree, but most people simply forget, that Winamp became freeware after AOL bought it.

Winamp under the AOL flag was running for a long time, but it wasn't profitable in the end. (Sure, AOL made a lot of mistakes during the years).

And at least AOL sold it, if they would have die it as nuts, it would be simply dead now.
