I used to love this and i don't like itunes, so i wanted to download it, although when i downloaded it, it didn't work and when i opened it to install it, it was a text file, any reason why this happening?

I downloaded from the microsoft website too.

"About Windows Media Player for Mac.
Microsoft will continue to offer Windows Media Player 9 as a free download for Macintosh users, but has no plans to provide future updates or product support for Windows Media Player for Mac".

Best you can do. Most people have the same problem downloading it.

When all else fails, try everything!

Windows Media player 9 for mac plays windows media files

It is not a media manager and as such - is no replacement for iTunes

Have you tried songbird - if you cannot get on with iTunes

Why does that look pretty much just like iTunes? I was gonna try it then I saw screen shots a while back and thought what is the difference other than the color... If he doesn't like iTunes I would thing he would have a bias against that type of UI anyway. I dunno... Someone clarify what the difference is? Cause they look the same.
