    Squeezebox discontinued, how about its server?

    logitech-leaves-squeezebox-fans-wondering-whats-next

    This article on cnet has freaked me out... My squeezebox radio is quite new and I m quite attached to it
    Please someone tell me the server will be alive and kicking for more than the 3-6 months logitech seems to imply on cnet

    Couldn t we simply get an upgrade to the new Radio? I gate bad investments... Please reassure me

    At this time, there are no plans to stop maintaining mysqueezebox.com or the local server, parts of the CNET article is based on rumors and thoughts/fears posted by community members.
    We will likely get less bug corrections, but as long as Logitech are having a lot or Radio's within warranty period they are likely going to keep both mysqueezebox.com and LMS working.

    You are going to be able to upgrade Squeezebox Radio to a UE Smart Radio through a firmware upgrade, but I wouldn't recommend doing it at this time because it have a lot less functionality than what your Squeezebox Radio currently have.

    FUD = Fear - Uncertainty and Doubt.

    I first heard the term back in the 70's from vendors trying to compete with IBM in the mainframe market place.
    Main system - Rock Solid with LMS 7.9.3 Official on WHS 2011 - 2 Duets and Squeeseslave
    Cabin system - Rock solid with LMS 7.9.3 Official on Win10 Pro - 1 RPi 3 Model B/Hifiberry DAC+ Pro/PiCorePlayer and Squeezeslave
    Squeezebox Boom - "At Large" player around both home and cabin
    Headphones and car - Android phone/Bluetooth w/full library on MicroSD card - PowerAmp music player app (similar to Material Skin)

    Interesting comments on the VortexBox forums from one of the admins there about Logitech's possible intention of future server software supporting both sets of products (UE and squeezebox):
    http://vortexbox.org/threads/4401-Co...ll=1#post28145

    It is unsubstantiated though.
