Default Warning: Windows 7 beta could corrupt your MP3s

Several reports from users testing the latest leaked build of Windows 7 indicate a potential data corruption issue using Microsoft's Windows Media Player 12.
I doubt that they will be releasing Win7 for a bit until this bug is fixed

Microsoft wished to thank all the self destructive guinea pigs that were kind enough to find this out for them at their expense!

It was only rumored that Microsoft leaked these on purpose. There's no actual, official disclosure thingy that it was Microsoft who leaked them was there? If there was, sorry la. I'm wrong >.<

LOL !

I hope you took the time to read the article CAREFULY - this only affects when you have certain options on (which are by default) online retrieving and auto filling/editing meta data, otherwise if like me, you turn all that shit off, no problem......... it doesn't CORRUPT your Mp3s, you lose a few seconds from beginning - let's not start to panic now I recall something very similar when the XP was in beta - Yes even playing around with a non official yet beta can corrupt your brain ;-))))
