"AOL, the parent company of Winamp producer Nullsoft, has cut the company down to a skeleton crew of three. This makes any future developments of Winamp unlikely, writes departing Winamp developer Steve Gedikian on his website."

"AOL split itself into four this week, and one of the casualties is the team that provided its musical credibility. And of course, we don't mean Spinner.com. After hemorrhaging employees for months, only three Nullsoft employees are left after the shake-up."
