    Microsoft is preparing to release a public preview of WMP10 beta today. The update (due at 12noon EST) will sport the much talked about new GUI and enhancements for portable media players. WMP10 is due to be released later this year and will be included with Windows Media Center 2005.

    Testers of Windows Media Center 2005 were treated to an early alpha copy of WMP10 for compatability reasons in the first round beta. Beta 2 of MCE 2005 is set to include the updated WMP10. MCE 2005 Beta 2 is due within 2 weeks.

    So aside from a pretty new interface, is there actually anything new about this?
