Your partly right, ghosting but no extra HD. I was thinking of getting a set of SATA's for my desktop so I guess this is a good time.Quote:

A. No. Consumers who are eligible for an upgrade to Media Center Edition 2005 will keep these features as they were a part of their originally purchased product."
I just might wait until an upgrade is available. I'm glad I found out before installing 05. Weird that MS would go to the trouble of removing a feature. The web site clearing states it's built on Pro, so they had to actually go to the trouble of removing that feature. According to MS:
"While you can access network resources on a work network or a domain, you cannot join a Windows XP Media Center 2005 PC to the domain. PCs running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 are designed specifically for home use. Professional features, specifically Domain Join and Cached Credentials (Credentials Manager for logins) are not included. As a result, you will be prompted for your login username/password to access network resources after a reboot or logging back into the PC. In addition, file shares or network resources set to require a domain-joined PC for access will not be available. Remote Desktop and Encrypting File System support are still included."
So if it's designed specifically for home use, and given that most homes don't have a domain controller, what was the point of removing it? Just to keep people at work from recording tv?
