basically, it's getting back to v.6.4 in terms of efficiency... 8 was just sooooooo bloated, bad coding all around... I've been a huge fan of 6.4 for the longest time now.

but yeah, I do like this version... seems promising... don't like how it stole all my file associations even when I told it not to, but that fix was easy, no biggie.

umm, lets see, what else... i think that's it... can't wait to see final, this looks good so far. very sleek

btw, DivX works fine, I still have 6.4 (mplayer2.exe) which I use as well, AND:

If you went to microsoft's website, and read the little popup that came up when you attempted to dl it, you would see that microsoft made mention of uninstalling it

I did indeed look at there uninstall instructions, you know what they where?

Use System Restore, that's it.

Guess what? I like many others have that sh1t disabled. It's a resource hog and more trouble then it's worth. That said, I did indeed try a beta product, and I did not check how to uninstall it before hand. However that dosent make it suck any less.

Yeah... I feel like calling MS and saying...

"I've got System Restore DISABLED, you JACKASS! How's about giving me a FRIGGIN' UNINSTALLER?!"

Well, now that I think about it... SP1 might be able to uninstall it with its middleware thing.... ? Guess we'll find out on Monday (or if I'm not lazy and install SP1 today )...

I got SP 1 today, it's somewhere on Microsoft's website, and you are able to uninstall WM9 if you need to.
