    Taking aim at the dominance of Apple Computer, Microsoft this week is launching a test version of a revamped jukebox aimed at trying to knock iTunes down a peg.

    Microsoft plans to make the beta of Windows Media Player 11 available for free to Windows XP users on Wednesday, but some consumers got an earlier look by scooping up a portable device optimized for the new jukebox.

    The new media player is Microsoft's latest attempt to unseat Apple, whose sales of both music and digital music players have consistently outpaced those of competitors.

    You had to become a forum moderator because we've turned on moderation for news posts to help stop spamming (some people are signing up, posting spam in the news so it will show in the front page, then leaving).


    Anyway, I tried this and it does work pretty nice...although adding songs takes forever.

    Although designed for Vista, WMP 11 Beta is not 64 bit compatable!

    Thanks a lot MS.

    WMP 11 (Beta) = A+

    I really like it! I was skeptical at first, but I got use to it and the song - search thing is GREAT! Especially since I have 4,987 songs. And WMP 10 plugins and info seemed to carry over...I love it already.
