Hi Randy,

WMP 11 can initially appear confusing if you're used
to WMP 10. In particular, in WMP 11 the details pane
(primary list view) is not set in the details view by
default, which messes up the keyboard navigation of
this list. However, once you've changed this, as
described in the guide, things become more familiar.

There are pros and cons between the two versions, but
advantages of wmp 11 include easier creation of
playlists, and a powerful search facility, which is
useful if you've got a large library. But the browsing
using the Library tree is slightly more restricted.

Good questions and I'm certainly very interested on 
the topic.  I upgraded several months  previously and 
found the new version scrambled  my Library and was 
generally harder for me to use.  I didn't invest a lot

of time because the upgrade was actually an 
inadvertent  upgrade which after a limitted amount of 
exploration was one I rolled back.  There are several 
things I'd like to add to my abilities with WMP 10 but

having not seen anything sufficiently enticing about 
WMP 11 I stayed with the comfort and function I had 
with WMP 10.

Now I've toured the guide in a very limitted fashion 
and while I find it has promise I want to study it a 
bit further before I decide whether or not I might 
upgrade again.  Presently what I most want is enhanced

library manipulation skills for my reasonably large 
collection of CDs now entirely stored on the computer.
