Windows Media Player. It comes with Windows and is total crap. It's crippled, meaning it lacks features and limits how high quality MP3s you can rip from CDs unless you pay. iTunes is completley free. There are no extra paid feautres or anything (except for music store, obviously). It does everything Windows Media Player does when you pay for it, except iTunes is free. I've had iTunes on my Mac ever since I got it and love it, and the Windows version seems really nice too. And the music store is really nice too. When there's a song you just cant find a decent quality version of on a p2p networks, you can pay 99 cents to download a high quality, legal version. Really a great deal, hell, it's cheaper than a bottle of soda. I've purchased quite a few songs off the music store...it's really worth it [/b][/quote] It isn't that either. MuchNews did a little story on quite a while ago, and that's where I heard it from.
