Could someone give me a technical explaination as to why Windows 2000 is no longer supported? Maybe this great app should be renamed to FoobarXP wink.gif

(What is going to happen to us win2k users now? I presume there won't be two branches maintained, one that will work on win2k and one more 'fancy pants' one. Are we left by the roadside?)

Let us hope for a charitative soul (or an interested one too tongue.gif) to port 9.5 to win2k in case the main developers no longer care about supporting it.

I understand the challenge that implies having to support an increasing number of platforms made by people (or an evil corporation tongue.gif) that don't care much about keeping things compatible or backporting certain capabilities. But, I must ask. Is it really necessary to ditch support for a "fine" (comparatively) and perfectly valid platform like windows 2000 to add whatever new features the new foobar has?

When talking about microsoft's OS's there are many bad things to expect when upgrading to a new "version". Personally I have become pretty confident in my dominion over this particular version (2000 pro), and find myself able to FIGHT it's attempts to fuck my system, and also it's weaknesses againts the outside world. If I should switch to XP or whatever, this will surely change and possibly cause some havoc. This idea is not very pleasing considering what I have now and that I really don't feel like I need any of XP's innovations... if it weren't for so many programs' new versions that now are ditching "old" w2k in favor of newer OS's, like foobar2000, which I absolutelly love!

I'm grateful for everything I got FOR FREE so far, but, again, żis this change absolutely necessary?
