You won't know until you do it, if you don't like it you can always roll it back to MP10..

WMP 11 works fine for all 3 of my XP machines,

"Under no circumstances" is a bit strong.

Like Strawballs WMP 11 works just fine for all my machines never had a problem with it,

got to agree "Under no circumstances" is a bit strong.

"Under no circumstances" without an explanation why isn't particularly helpful. Like Strawballs and mammak I haven't had a problem.

1] VLC plays just about every media file you throw at it effortlessly without need for external codecs.

2] The M$ 11 offering has significant DRM issues. These are well documented.

3]On that, besides dogmatic familiarity, under what circumstances would the M$ offering be better.

Now't wrong with mine either. In fact I think it's the bog's what nots. Like it far better than Win amp, The Creative thing and others I have tried. Go for it as others have said if you don't like it you can always do something else, The choice is yours.

I agree with Baldtaco.A lot of problems with WMP.Hardly a day goes bye without someone looking for help,I dont think Microsoft should be allowed to make you download a program that does not work properly,And have to pay to download a decoder to run it.

"under what circumstances would the M$ offering be better" I never said it is as I have never used VLC my comment was about writing off somthing without explination.
