MusicNet goes Windows Media MusicNet has announced it will be offering its entire music library in Microsoft Windows Media 9 -format. The service currently has a selection of over 350,000 songs available for permanent download, and CD burning in various formats.
It seems Real Networks' 40 percent share of the company did little to keep Microsoft out from MusicNet. Both MusicNet and Microsoft representatives praised the streaming capabilities of WMP9. According to Dave Fisher, general manager of the Windows Digital Media Division at Microsoft, WMP9 "offers consumers near instantaneous playback".

I'd still much rather stick to my WMP6.4 and Media Player Classic
