vegdelicious: there is no need to shout. sure there's a small demand for a native Winamp for Linux, but neither the original dev team / management or those that followed afterwards saw it worth it or financially viable to do (as everything needs to pay it's way).

and if anything, a Mac client was seen as a higher priority to Linux (more so when most of the dev team prior to the sale were Mac users), hence the beta Mac client.

sure it'd be great to have a native Winamp client on every platform but it's not realistic and so only the main ones were focused on. hence Wnidows, Android and Mac (though i'd heard rumours an iOS app had been in the works).
