MP3 Gone from WinXP.
It seems that native MP3 support will not ship with Microsoft Windows XP, the first consumer edition of the Windows OS using the 32-bit NT kernel. It first appeared that Microsoft would ship a low-quality encoder with XP to make their WMA format look better, but they claim that this is not the case and the low-quality codec was only for testing. Windows XP should accept external 3rd party codecs for encoding MP3s, which you must install yourself, however.
