Windows XP ProN Coming soon to an EU supplier near you! Personally I think that the requirement was a load of manure, but that's just me. While the original name they wanted was a poke at the EU (Windows XP Reduced Media Edition), and while it accurately described the product (no WMP), the EU didn't take it. I think the new name is quite amusing though My question is, did they merely remove WMP itself, or did they also remove the DirectShow and other video / audio playback APIs and 'hooks' in the underlying OS? Because if they did, ain't nothing gonna run on it without a hefty download. Not WMP, not Winamp, not *shudder* Real, or whatever.
