Winamp Update Blues !

What’s it with software companies these days? They are releasing software updates as if there is no tomorrow

Take Winamp for example…

Yesterday it was 5.112 and today it is 5.12 L

Today its 5.12 and tomorrow it will be 5.14 with no reason as to where the 0.13 has gone

I know that it isn’t necessary to upgrade for all of us… but see the way of releasing upgrades that they are doing, its just a piece of shit upgrade frequency…

People who don’t know about what a software upgrade does in terms of fixes, etc… will foolishly download all the upgrades promptly…

Agreed that upgrades are necessary for the security paranoid and the core user but a release everyday? That’s useless if I may say so, waste of the developer’s time and the user’s bandwidth…

In fact, if they had brains they would have at least released an upgraded version every month with all fixes built in one instead of doing the daily upgrades…

Tell me what’s the difference between an anti-virus and this daily upgraded software?

Who the heck cares anyway, I am better off with my Windows Media Player 10 which rarely updates though it’s a Microsoft product.


Boo to you software upgrade freaks :(
