Does anyone else wonder why the owner of Shoutcast streaming server code is using IceCast (the KH build at that) as the RN streaming server?
I find it a bit ironic and quite funny..

I'm guessing it has to do with scaling - that Icecast scales up a lot better than Shoutcast.

Your thoughts?

Radionomy has only owned Shoutcast since 2014.

However, the Radionomy streaming service in one form or another has existed since 2008 (opened to French speakers in 2008, opened to English and other languages in 2012, established US offices in 2012).

I think they have always used Icecast... so a nine year old habit won't die off that easily or would require a lot of migration.

That's actually a very old version of the KH fork of Icecast. (Current release is KH8 version.) Radionomy has modified it considerably to fit their needs. It would be a HUGE effort to start over based on Shoutcast.
