which one is better?
the first one is from vista 5231 (the first wmp11 build) and the second one is the current release for xp...
let's choose :)

my opinion: the old one is better because it just fits in windows xp and the new one is black and doesn't fit in windows xp..

I agree about the dark colours not suiting XP- they should change the XP version to suit.
As for the layout, the newer one surely. One major advantage for me is having seperate repeat and shuffle buttons- both incorporated into one button was a pain!

I prefer the new layout and colour. Somehow, the black WMP11 looks nice on my taskbar :yes: .

For XP the old one looks better, but on Vista the new one looks amazing.

the vistateam skin made a skin of wmp11 for wmp10 and it still works in wmp11. hehe. pretty cool. its nice to be able to switch back and forth just with a click of a button.

Well I kinda think the new black is sexay.

Plus the new library is a godsend. So so much better than what they had in WMP 9 & 10. If nothing else it's the reason you should upgrade.

Erm, Color Change has been in versions 9 AND 10, but what I think MS should do, is add an option to the Color Chooser to choose between a Dark mode (like the current one) or a Light Mode!

I like the new design more. But like y'all.. yeah I hope MS improve the color changer. Right now its just hard getting the color to match certain desktop feel let alone having the default black on a blue xp theme. :pinch:

the new design is definitely more slick, doesnt make any difference to me seeing as WMP is the ****tiest media player around.
