Earlier this week, Windows Media Player's final incarnation was release

For those interested download HERE. (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx)

I use WMP quite a bit as I have an iriver portable media center. Between Windows Media Center and WMP 11, I am always sync'ing TV, videos, music etc with it so WMP is a must. From that point of view, WMP is definitely an improvement. As for the rest of the stuff, its really up to the user and their needs IMO.

cheers

Wow I must d/l this...love the beta 1 (ya i know, old isn't it). Despite other people who don't like WMP, I believe it is the best media player out there for Windows (seconded only by VLC, which is the best for Linux). As to download limits...my hard drive's uhh... not gonna have any space left on it but that's the good thing about having your own PC's (yes, 4 PC's...wish 2 of them didn't have 2 or 5 gig HD's)

I've been using this since Beta 2, and honestly I don't have much use for it. Its got snazzy looks and a neat Library, and I don't even need all the other features Microsoft is boasting about. What I hate is, that the menu's been removed and it looks real odd when brought back. This whole thing is quite confusing, actually, with all the things switched here and there.

Like stinger, I stand by the statement, Winamp FTW.

not that Im WMP fanboy, though I do use it alot because of my PMC Player, but Ive never seen the allure of winamp. snazzy skins...meh. I really dont listen to much music on the compy, thats probably why I dont get the fanboyish emotions behind which player is >1337.

Astro's ambivalence FTW ;)

Well actually, Winamp is a light and small player, unlike WMP, which tends to hog my system. I haven't installed a single skin for Winamp, but I still think that the fact that is a light and unadulterated player owns WMP. :xp:

Eh, for me there are only two good media players. There is Windows Media Player, which is awesome cool and has all the features on Earth, and there is VideoLAN VLC Media Player, which is light, has codecs for all the weird formats on Earth, and runs fine on Windows as well as Linux.

I HATE:
Real Media Player
QuickTime
iTunes
WinAmp
XMMS
and More...
