I have no idea which OS to order when I configure my new machine. I don't yet do much with video, but the features of MCE do sound nice. I have old family movies on dvd that I want to edit, but for now that's all. I have a home network that is secure and I want it ot stay that way. The programs I run most are Adobe products such as CS, plus MS Office 2003. ny words of wisdom are welcome. Thanks.
