This is important, I think you should read it.
OK, so, let’s get straight in to this story today. Basically, how many of you use the Media Centre on windows 7? Regularly? OK, if you do well then read below to see why sticking to windows 7 will benefit you if you have intended to upgrade!
Yeah, so we all know by this stage that windows 8 will have a load of media and entertainment features! But, here is the thing, if you, the end user want to use all of these then it will set you back by some money, how much I just do not know to be honest.
Until now on PCs and laptops etc the media centre and capability of computers has not been realised. Just let’s have a little look at the history of Media Centre
1. O.S: Windows XP: On windows XP the media centre had its own version of the operating system- “Windows XP Media Centre Edition”, and was not on every version of Microsoft windows XP.
2. O.S: Windows Vista: On windows vista the media centre was just embedded onto the premium versions of the operating system so it was….
So, as you can see until now with the release of windows 8 the media centre has never been actually fully realised, and it may come as a surprise that windows are going to start charging for the service in a time where more people are linking their PCs to their TVs and hosting large media files on their PCs.
Currently there is no cost released by Microsoft but if people actually stick to what they know and love it could make a pretty penny for the Microsoft team, alternatively however people could just download the many free software’s available for doing hosting and sharing media.
Will you be buying windows 8? Sticking to the media centre? Let me know. Thanks!
