What is your take on MCE?

  1. I have never installed MCE on a computer before. I was wondering what people think about it. The people I am making the computer for will be working with video, music, pictures etc. Is MCE better than pro for that? I am adding a tuner also for video capture and to be able to watch tv etc. Please get back about your thoughts. Thanks.

    If its going to be used like a real computer there is almost no difference between it and pro for video music and pictures. If its going to be hooked up to a tv and used for viewing pictures, movies, and listening to music it is far better and simpler than anything else out there.

    It's Xp pro with some features disablaled and media center program. The media center works good with just a remote. It's not much better than programs you can get for Xp or Linux.

    What I have seen is that people don't like the 3rd party programs as much as MCE! They say MCE works much better.
