Agreed, it does have the look and feel of vista, it feels very futuristic and has so far been very stable and most definetely an improvement over wmp10. When it was first installed I had a problem with DVD stuttering, but a reinstalled codec soon sorted that out in the end.
Right here's one for you with apologies if seen as hijacking a thread. Got a new Dell lappy,with WMP 10 installed - tried to update to WMP11 and get the following message " a more recent version of windows media player is already running on your computer, Setup cannot continue" Running XP Media Edition. What's going on here?
