WinDVD will play CDs. Who knew?

I was telling Eric how my [work] computer won't play CDs (prompted by him saying how his [work] computer has stopped playing DVDs) and he suggested Windows Media Player, which of course I couldn't find. (I thought I had done a fairly thorough search yesterday and found that it only has RealPlayer and QuickTime.) On a whim, I tried WinDVD, and it plays no problem. (Though on a phone call he explained that WMP comes with Windows and you can't get rid of it, and doing an actual Search confirms that. But I enjoy that WinDVD will actually play CDs.)
