You can't really remove QuickTime; it's part of the OS and is used by iTunes/iMovie/iDVD, the Finder, FrontRow, your browser(s) and many other apps. You could probably Trash the QuickTime Player app without a problem, though, but it doesn't really matter anyway.

Windows Media isn't much of an option on the Mac, because almost nothing is supported. It's also been abandoned by Microsoft.

QuickTime gets a lot more powerful with the addition of the Perian and Windows Media/Flip4Mac codecs. Since you can't remove QuickTime, and since it's so widely used anyway, you should probably install those regardless of which player you use most of the time. And remember that iTunes is a video player, too. (And unlike QT Player, it supports fullscreen for free.)
