Guess it looks like another beta to go grab

Just so I remember I've got a beta installed, once the thing goes final...

Ok, but how long would it take you to load 10,000 songs?

What you really need to look at is VM Size ( virtual memory size ). This is the real amount of RAM its using. It includes the size of the executable and all the RAM its using and it doesn't change depending on whether 'tis in focus. You might have to add it from the View menu, from "Select columns."

Wow, this is a huge improvement over WMP10! Much cleaner interface, loads quicker, just a much needed improvement.
