Microsoft to Release an Update to Windows Media Player This Year
I just received an email clarification back from Microsoft’s Jim Allchin regarding my post on the Microsoft/blogger dinner last week. Jim says, “We will have an update of WMP this year.” Just don’t expect a huge update.
This is great news in my book. Hopefully I might get a minor performance increase in my WMP library when this is released later this year. But if I don’t, I’m really hoping that we see a bigger kind of media library fix when Longhorn is out late next year. All of our digital libraries are getting larger and larger and I think Microsoft should keep this scalibility in mind and stay ahead of the curve when it comes to performance of large digital libraries.
