Napster will not return to its former glory days. Despite how many people may come to like it, it will not return back to its former glory days because there are many music softwares out there that perform just as well, if not better. However, true to its hardcore fans, Napster will always have a haven for its original music lovers and users.
Napster today is simply not as good as any kind of competitor that is on the market today. Napster was huge because it was the first widely used file sharing service around. With huge amounts of competition, and better ptocols to transfer large files, it never will be the best again.
Napster will not return to its former glory as a haven for music lovers. This is because people turn to such quick resources as YouTube to watch videos. YouTube users get to listen to the music and watch the music video at the same time. This is all for no cost and no software installation required.
I do not believe Napster will ever return to its former glory as a haven for music lovers. The draw for Napster was its wide variety of free music in an era that had not yet thought about all of the artists that were not getting paid thanks to people giving away their music. Napster nor any other music service will be that popular ever again.
There are too many platforms now which outperform napster on every level. It was good back in the old glory days of file sharing, but its glory is now over. In its place are torrents and free streaming online. Maybe if they completely restructure there could be a comeback, but doubtful.
