Windows Media Player 11 Final

Post a comment

WMP11 is now available for download. I want to try it but Im quite hesitant. It looks shiny and has a lot of "eye candy" but winamp plays my music just fine and VLC player plays all the videos other player cant. Is it really worth the upgrade? Where can I find Windows Media Player 11 reviews? Paul Thurrott doesnt have any review at the moment.
