the curve of time. there are endless posts already on here expressing that winamp has gone too long, the forums literally full of such posts.

i won't bother to see if this is correct, but its not demonstrating a majority in the user base. the thread itself serves a population that is JTFE wary, not the overall proportion of of users.

i say again, most users are totally unaware of JTFE and that that fact is painfully obvious.

absurd. those features are not whats holding up the next release.

whatever that means. i am for all features making their way back in. BUT we don't need each and every feature in at once. give them time to work em in, and in the meantime a new ver can come out.

apps like this want the MOST users. the majority want an app out. not putting an plugin out like JTFE keeps the app from going out at all, and i think thats dopey.

What we are you referring to? It is often true that those who know don't say and those who say don't know.

no idea what u meant, but i meant that we only get vague claims a new winamp will come out one day. could be a problem given whats being said in the other thread :RE being sued.

i represent my own opinion based on the facts at hand. it is a fact that JTFE does not matter to the winamp user universe. it is a fact, after waiting so long, a majority of winamp users want a new winamp.
