Hmmm. Please note that according to news about this topic Microsoft does not
want to support open source or Linux directly (of course), instead, their
goals is to get market on embedded systems using Linux OS. They also want to
implement stupid protection and so on. Personally I don't want to use these
types of softwares (like Media Player: send information to Microsoft and
other ugly things). Also I can bet it can't give the wide range of video/audio
output drivers as MPlayer can ;-)
