Other people are using WinMCE. Search the forums for Media Center and see what comes up.
I just got my new laptop a few weeks ago and it came pre installed with WinXP Media Center. Its fairly easy to use and i can boot right into it without the other excess programs of windows. Does anyone use this as their front end? It seems to me that it would be a simple solution if you dont want to bother with customizing another frontend to work with your system.
Just thought id throw that out there.
Alright...i dont think i would use it...jsut wondering.
