new features and um new features

Reading about Windows 7 which just went public beta Friday for about one hour before the servers crashed, it looks like there are some new interesting features. In WMP 12 is something called "Play To" which will let you control what is playing on another device. From ars technica...
WMP12 makes it easier to play back audio or video on remote devices, a feature dubbed "Play To." WMP12 can stream to other computers in your HomeGroup, so, for example, you can browse your library on your laptop but actually play back on the HTPC connected to your sound system.
That's a good idea.

Now for the feature that is not so good. okay its a bug really. From ars technica ...
Windows 7 build 7000, which leaked less than two weeks ago, has a data corruption issue when playing back MP3s using Windows Media Player 12.
That's why we have such things as Beta releases.
