LOL, another "surprise". ;)

Who cares? ;) I certainly don't. And there are plenty alternatives
around. Maybe, people still having it installed _and_ using it just
don't know that there is more than MS. Which is precisely why they
install WMP by default and why they got penalized for it by the EU if I
remember correctly.
Nowadays the are forced to at least offer a version without WMP. Those
are the N-editions. Guess where one can by them? Not in the EU at least.
