Windows Media Player vs Zune Software vs Media Center?

I have 3 media options on my computer right now. I have the all purpose Media Player, the Television connecting Media Center, and the Zune compatible Zune Software. Could someone please provide the pros and cons to each maybe, and help me decide which should be my preferred choice? Thanks.

What do you prefer?

suppose this is your question, right? the answer you've got is good.
I'm using WMP for music and video (shark codecs for win7) and I'm pretty much happy with it, plays everything, nice picture quality...tending to not install third party software as much as possible. Keep it simple right?
cheers

Hey fellow badger

I use WMP for the default(file type) in Windows Explorer. It tends to open very fast and it plays only what I want, when I want.

I use the Zune software when playing more than one song, background music, browsing, tracking collections and stuff like that.

Media Center is strickly for video and TV, as it offers the highest quality, IHO.
