XBMC is the best so far at least for me :) the only thing that I do like about WMC is that my remote can turn it on and off other then that I like my XBMC.

Thank you for the link. I've been using windows 8 for almost a week now. Overall I think it's okay, not a huge departure from Win 7 other than the Metro start page. I've had some issues with sound not working usually happens just before I start a game or just after finishing a game so it is some sort of driver issue. Also I have found that surfing the web isn't as smooth as other users have expressed. I find the page will hang from time to time and take a long time to load. Also I haven't seen alot of driver updates yet for the OS. I recall that when Win 7 came out it seemed like most manufactures had some sort of driver ready to go, not so with Win 8.

Well it seems I drifted off topic, sorry, thanks again for the link.

So, you really think that media centre is important for the Enterprise?

That's not the point. Usually Enterprise is like Ultimate, more features than Pro not less. And what about Windows 8 , why you need Windows 8 Pro to get Media Center, it,S make no more sense.
Steven Sinofsky is really retarded
