I say so long, and NO THANKS for anything. WMP was always a festering pile of Dong since, way back when. VLC is far, and away vastly more superior to it in pretty much every way. For Music (Back in the day, it would have either been WinAmp, or iTunes v4*). Today I find myself guilty of having moved on to Google Play Music, for those needs.
*Before the Music Store came out., and iTunes was just a decent Tager, Player frontend for my Third-Gen iPod.
