    Who said Windows will no longer support Media Player ?

    Where did you find that claim ?

    There is no indication from Microsoft that they will be dumping Media Player. Do you have an inside track on this matter ?

    I found no claim of that, I merely anticipated that someday, MS will stop supporting it, just like they have dropped support of almost every other software they've written eventually. My favorite piece of software was MS Streets and Trips, and they dropped it. They're dropping XP. etc,. etc.

    They just haven't updated it in a long time.
    This may be true but it doesn't really mean anything. I use WMP extensively (including as a DLNA server and controller) and have noted no bugs or improvements that need to be fixed or added. Maybe I'm just missing the bugs or missing functionality, but as they say, "If it isn't broken don't fix it."

    XP is an operating first released in October 2001 so it is, in computer terms, antiquated in design, functionality and security. It was replaced by Vista in January 2007. Microsoft ended support of XP on April 8, 2014, yes almost 13 years after its first release. So I would not exactly say Microsoft "dropped" XP. Rather, I would say they evolved their operating system to a much more modern version that supports today's technologies whereas XP cannot. Just my opinion...and now back to the topic of this thread <sorry>.

    I think there is some confusion between Media Player and Media Center. Some of the claims relate to Media Center.

    The end of Windows Media Center is a fact, not a claim.

    I know - but it was not supposed to be a name, just an adjective. There must be room for some fun.

    An adjective requires a noun or a verb. Ooops there I go again. Sorry.

    I would say that they dropped support, because not everyone can buy a new OS every time MS has a whim to change it. My 2000 Dodge Intrepid is still supported by Chrysler/Dodge 15 years later. And Dodge didn't ever make them again after 2000.

    250 million people still use XP:
