    Thanks for the link!

    Downloaded and installed it. IMO, it looks like M$ tried to copy the iTunes UI a bit. Will M$ ever come up with a new, original idea or design?

    Um, WMP7 came out way before iTunes.

    As for WMP11, I'm liking it. There's alot of core changes under the hood, and device sync has much improved. New Library look is nice, and the search-as-you-type was long overdue. Looking forward to Vista's Media Center intergration with WMP11, and some of the network sharing that will come in later betas of WMP11.

    But the look of WMP7 wasn't even close to what iTunes looks like. WMP11, IMO, looks more iTunes-like.
