The only giveaway that this isn't your father's XP is this one screen during setup:
After that, though, it looks very normal; the N is not displayed anywhere, disappointingly. Everything looks perfectly normal... until you copy a sound or video file to your desktop. Then, you get a blank icon, and Windows complains that the file type not recognized if you try to open the file.
For the first time since the original release of Windows 3.0, MIDI files are not recognized. Now that's progress! 13 years and 3 months later, you too can finally be spared the hassle of using a PC that can play MIDI files. Whew!
Thankfully, a 12.8 MB download and five minutes later, everything was back to normal. It was entirely trivial to install Windows Media Player 10.
Thanks, Europe, for the awesome happy fun time! You rule!
