    We're using XP N Edition - no WMP for our kiddies.
    Will need to ensure that WMP 11 doesn't try and deploy to kids PC's via WSUS though..

    It seems the the Enterprise Deployment Pack works with the new version. This is a bunch of scripts which repackages WMP as an MSI making deployment easy.

    Beware the new DRM restrictions in WMP11. You can't 'backup' your licenses any more thus you can't move DRM restricted content from machine to machine. I don't know if it'll affect any software we have here though, I'm unsure what (if anything) is using MS DRM.

    You can use it with the new Xbox360 Dashboard update to stream WMV without needing Media Center.

    Ah I found a hurdle after reading some more. Apparently if you rip CD's withWMP11 you can't move the tracks to another machine as per the DRM restrictions.

    Re: Media Player 11 Launched

    I know that it's sort of a topic shift but after the amount of grief I had getting any response from the OB2 when I couldn't get my music to work after upgrading a hard drive I refuse to use anything DRM now..

    For school purposes I guess WMP11 might end up on there but not until it has to.. and even then I may find something else more acceptable.
