WiMP - first impressions

So I downloaded WiMP yesterday, a streaming music service. The cable/broadbrand provided sent me a letter where I got an offer for 1 instance of WiMP streaming on my computer.

First thing I noticed is that it uses Adobe AIR. So it runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. I've seen some Adobe AIR apps before without being impressed, but I like this application. It's responsive, and it has something Spotify doesn't have: autocomplete on searches.

The focus on music is a bit different than Spotify. In WiMP playlists are in focus, and I see that it is easier to go outside of the mainstream and find different kinds of interesting music.

Right now I'm listening to the latest Foo Fighters, and it sounds good.
