Default WMP 11 Beta 2 Released

I don't know if this should've been posted in the other thread, but, well...

Beta 2 Released!

Check link for download:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...1/default.aspx

I just gave it a spin and the interface has some very subtle tweaks which gives it a more "polished" look, if you will. Haven't noticed any major changes in functionality, but it does load up much faster for me.

So far I like it better. It definitely seems snappier. I noticed some other slight modifications as well.

Overall, I think the final product will be awesome.

Still no love for x64. This is weak. I used Urge to get Silversun Pickups "Carnavas" just bfore switching to x64. Can't even validate the purchase anymore. To their credit, Urge refunded my $9.90.

By this I assume you mean that WMP11 wont work under X64? What about WMP10? I'd hope atleast WMP10 would work under x64. I ask cause this upcoming Friday I'm dropping some $$$ down for XP Pro x64 (funny, it'll be the first copy of Windows I've ever paid for ).

I doubt that is why he isn't using it. My free-XP works wonderful with SP2.

Maybe he uses hacker tools that need raw sockets..

Thats about the only reason I could think of why he wouldn't use SP2..
