Title: Why there is no available version of AIMP for Linux and macOS?
Post by: Husckler on July 13, 2018, 20:25:33
This is one of the best music players available for Windows. I cannot understand why it wasn't been ported for these OS'es.

All music players I installed on Linux or macOS, nothing of them have all functions available on AIMP. E.g.

- Variety of themes for the GUI (skins), for the icons, plugins, color changing...
- Equalizer
- Sound effects
- Radios
- Tags
- Audio converter


The closest to it is VLC (which isn't even a real music player), maybe Audacious or Rhythmbox. Not all complete features from AIMP are available on a unique music player.
That's very sad.  :(

Why it should be? Windows is most powerful desktop platform.

Oh come on.
If you said "most common", that would be much more accurate.
You make it sound like Windows is the best OS ever, which is not necessarily true (not for lots of people anyway).

edit: I am a Windows user :P

ORLY? So, why "your best" OS still not have "best" software?

Read my post again. There is language barrier here it seems.

Windows is a dead platform.

Linux is everywhere. From your bellowed Android phone to the server that host this website to Arduino and RaspberryPi, etc.

Microsoft is trying desperately to compete with Linux. They even included the entire Linux subsystem into the latest Windows10 builds.

So it's easier than ever to develop Linux apps on Windows!

P.S. Linux also runs on Samsung phones:

"One device for everything".... and that's running Linux.

1. Android is not Linux.
2. Windows is more popular desktop OS in the world, just know that.
3. Linux is just a kernel. What number of OS based on it? 100? 1000?
4. What reason to develop application for OS for dead platform? All users migrates to mobile world. Desktop is dead.
