The True Story of Audion. Panic has decided to retire Audion, a great little music player, which had much similarity to a version of WinAMP for the Mac OS, for those of you unfamiliar with it. This article is a great behind the scenes look at independent software development in the Mac OS market. It is also an interesting look into this particular market segment, and the things that happened behind the scenes. Apple wanted to buy Audion at least twice, and AOL also tried at one point. Finally, this article reveals something that those of us using their software already knew, that the guys at Panic are truly great guys, and that they do what they do for all the right reasons. If you are a Mac user, they are offering Audion as a free download. I own a license, bought before the iTunes Music Store, and I haven’t had the app installed on my machine in a while.

That story was well worth the length (including the offshoots). Thanks, Robert
