Neowin noticed Winamp's website is still online, despite a previous statement from AOL that the media player would go offline on Friday, December 20th. One of the Winamp team members confirmed on Twitter that something is happening but no new updates arrived since Saturday.
This fact would seem to lend credence to rumors that AOL is in serious talks with a company that would in theory acquire Winamp. The thinking is that the negotiations would give the site and the software a stay of execution until the deal is finalized. So far, the only company that has been named as a possible buyer is Microsoft. For its part, AOL has been completely silent about the future of Winamp beyond the December 20th deadline notice that was posted a month ago.
