Windows 7: Why does Microsoft's media player rule?

I use Windows Media Player for one reason. It plays everything I ask it to play. Maybe I'm not asking enough.

Go to where your skin file is installed.
On my PC it is here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Skins\PJL_WMP11
You should see a bunch of png files.
There should be:
  • beat_left.png
  • beat_right.png
You can edit those files (back up the originals).
Here are the ones I made:

If wmp hadn't hidden the equalizer I suppose it would be okay.
After a fresh install wmp works allot better but the painful navigation to the equalizer pretty much kills ease of use for me anyway ?
When iTunes has a better display wmp is in the wrong direction
I haven't re-installed vlc because wmp started playing my videos so that's good enough for me/ and iTunes always plays music pretty good.
Although I don't burn so there is the un-known factor lurking.

Mine doesn't have any colour themes.
Maybe it's too old.

Thanks for those links.

+1 on that I only use media center for live TV everything else VLC

WMP was cool back in the day when your choices were limited now shoot WMP took a backseat to more less resource hungry and better extensions all the way around
