Windows Mediaplayer for Mac Discontinued.

From Slashdot:

According to, Microsoft has had no plans to update or improve Windows Media Player and has instead thrown its weight behind a third party plugin to fill the void. Adam Anderson, Microsoft public relations manager, told, ‘It’s basically a business decision for Microsoft. Like any other company, we have business priorities. Our focus really is in delivering the best experience to Windows customers.’

I for one am very excited to download and try this plug in and hopefullly rid my Mac Mini of the annoying Windows Media Player for Mac program/plugin (which rarely plays the streaming video files I want to see).
