Winamp

Ok ive installed winamp again (nice as it is) and just looked at the version.

It says "Copyright 1997 - 2003 Nullsoft inc (asusual)
Then " V5.0 (x86) - Aug 17 2003"

Yet i cant find version 5 on this site. And im quite sure version 3 was shit and version 4 never existed.

Any heads up.

This is a leaked alpha version, and thus not supported by nullsoft, winamp or these forums.

Version 4 probably never will exist.

WA5 is supposed to be a combination of WA2 and WA3. Thus, 2+3=5.

It also sends back your location, IP and service provider back to AOL central command every time you use it, to tell them that someone else has downloaded and installed this illegal leaked alpha, expect a knock on the door from the men in black any time....

It also installs a secret backdoor trojan onto your system, so the developers and official beta testers can steal all your hard drive secrets, in fact were looking at your collection of granny porn right now......

They had a timetable out for winamp5, and unlike winamp3, this is not an entirely new winamp, so it should not feel rushed even if it's forced out sometime soon. It's just winamp2 with freeform skins is it not? and what ever happened to winamp 2.95? any updates on the legal stuff?

No sig here folks.

well nothing winamp has posted has said anything contrary to winamp 5 being just a freeform skin version of winamp 2.95 (plus other minor changes). And the fact that it's free doesn't mean that they work on it or work slow on it. they still get PAID.

No sig here folks.

Bleh winamps winamp, infact apart from the options and the occasional errors theres no problems with it, and it just looks like winamp version 2.

AOL men in black, he funny. Like the RIAA will get all you yanks with your downloaded Mp3's, glad I live in ireland, an american nocks on a door around here and his ass is strapped to 200lb's of c4 and sent to manchester for an explosive evening.

Since when has Winamp been AOL property anyway? I never saw ArseWholesOnline logo at any point, nor do AOL's crap website advertise it. Id hate to think something this good came from someone so shit.

Get a clue and get up to date, AOL has owned Winamp for quite a few years now.

AOL also has graciously allowed Winamp and Shoutcast to continue existing by bailing them out when they were in finacial troubles and providing copious amounts of bandwidth for broadcasting...so yeah...let's all just focus on the fact that a lot of AOL users are stupid and that's what makes AOL, the company, suck. Let's not focus on the fact that they've got serious accounting issues since merging with Time/Warner and marketing guys who appearently took their schooling from Acme Labs(providers of fine Anvils and portable holes).

It's obviously all the lusers' fault.
