My other annoyance with WMP is that I feel there are too _many_ features (many of them being non-important ones). I think we need to get back to roots and figure out exactly what we are going for with WMP.
I completely agree with you on the to many unimportant features thing. WMP should be re-thought from the ground.
I mean who cares for example about skins if all the OS is skinnable... But there are a lot other things that aren't important but part of the program.
WMP is having the big opportunity to be the number 1 media player, but it is going to loose it more and more. So many are using other players, because of the problems with WMP!
