Hello all!
Great forum, really enjoy reading it. There's a lot of knowledgeable people in here, so I thought you might be able to help me with my problem.

I recently switched to a macbook and I love it! I spend a lot of my time listening to music, but I frankly think, that itunes is a quite horrible piece of software.

Is it possible to run Windows Media Player 11 in OSX? I find it far superior to itunes in every way, especially the interface. So is there some way to run WMP instead for playing my music?

Thanks in advance!

The only way (that I know of) to run WMP 11 in OSX would be to run it in Parallel or VM ware Fusion.

Check out the program Crossover. I heard it doesn't work with several programs but I guess it's worth checking out. http://www.codeweavers.com/products/cxmac/
