Windows Media player in Europe

RE: EU Court of First Instance hears Microsoft antitrust appeal

Attorneys from Microsoft and its rivals argued whether the EU's antitrust sanctions should be implemented immediately or stayed during Microsoft's appeal.

I'm mostly checking out bloggar's integration with RSS Bandit. Also, this is an interesting post. If Microsoft is forced to unbundle WMP from XP it will be interesting to see how that sells. And who pays for the marketing for this new version....

It seems likely that the unbundled copy wont sell very well, not because people like WMP, but because there wont be much of an incentive. Most people who want XP, already have XP, unless they're buying a copy with a new PC.
