I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Winamp, the first MP3 player I ever used. At some point in the late 1990s, I recall downloading my first MP3 — “Circles” by Soul Coughing — and firing up Winamp and being absolutely amazed. A piece of software, on my computer, was playing music without any sort of physical media present. It was so obviously the future.

And it really did whip the llama’s ass (bonus points to Frederic Lardinois for an excellent and appropriate title).
