    You beat me to it JMH.... similar story: Windows 8 Will Include Windows Media Center

    Personally, I hope MS ditches Media Player in favor of Media Center... make it the default and maybe people will start adopting it!

    I like the media player but I kind of agree. But I guess some people want to directly go to the media or might like the ease of media player more I know I do. But they have not updated media player in ages. They used to update like a lot back when I was a kid.
