The pop up screens you see when you move the mouse, dont show up with the remote, it acts like its a full fleged system that you'd get from cable or somethin with mp3 and dvd playing ability.

    I mean all the Cadilac and Mercedes systems aren't using touch screen....but it does work great for touch screen. All the people who said they think its workin like a charm on thier touch screens, I looked and are using 7" screens. Maybe if you have gigantic fat fingers.....and the touch screen wigs out when you touch cause your fat finger is pressin more of the screen then it should...lmao. jp (hope I didn't **** anyone off, it was just a joke).....

    I do admit tho...I will be using both this program and MMC1...And maybe more MMC1 if Ben would make me a hybrid program for my car.....but we dunno yet.

    Is not the problem of my big fat finger.....as I can press the button correctly as I'm looking and aim at it.....

    But while driving, the button r not big enough for me to just take a quick glance and click it.....the buttons i'm talking about r the tiny sound control panel sitting on the bottom left of the screen. with next track volume up/down.

    That would be great, something I will look forward to!!

    And for the car, It is probably best for car use. Drib doesn't know what he's talking about, no offence.
    Ok, I just installed WINDOWS XP without MCE with my first MCE2005 CD. I ALSO contacted MS via a friend; they said that they both are the SAME versions, except for this difference (out of the box):
    MCE2005 has no joining networks and file encryption, BOTH functions can be added after installation via windows update.

    I think it's really weak to say I don't know what I'm talking about. I have many years of experience of Windows and I am making my living as a informatician (networks expert).

    Now back on-topic:

    For those who are looking for the same functions as MCE does, look at those programs:

    For WIndows:

    For Linux:

    I am planning installing Linux on my Epia M1000 with Mythtv, it looks really nice!

    Even if you don't use the MCE 2005 frontend I still like the OS better than regular XP pro.
    Sadly the latest drivers for my video card are from 2002, and under ATI's site it has no drivers for MCE

    He is right. There are no MCE drivers for his card. There are MCE drivers but there isn't any for his specific card.

    So when it asked for the second CD you reset your computer and Winows XP booted just fine?
