I still don't see what makes it better...

I am getting more and more angry at Microsoft for not making progress but killing it...

Although the alternatives to Windows Media Player are worse....

I am actuallyy confused with the correct way to respond to this media player...

Both 32 and 64 bit for XP are out already: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/window ... echnology=

Nothing for Windows Server 2003 yet, but then I guess they assume people don't use servers for Media Player so it's not a high priority for them...

The consensus seemed to be that nothing (noticeable) had changed in the new build, though. Even that bug with the white dots in the corner of the window is still there (which I think is a pretty big bug, seeing as it looks so unfinished).
