    Hi all I am getting ready to purchase a new computer. Im having
    trouble deciding which operating system I want. I did pick up a couple
    of books from the Library. I am still a windows 98 user let me say up
    front. Well anyways after doing a little homework, I am surmizing that
    Windows Media Center is primarily if you want to add your TV to the
    mix. I have no desire to do that and maybe never will. To me
    computing is computing and Tv is Tv but that is just me. I have a very
    very nice entertainment setup already so that is my reason for the
    bent. Anyways if any of you could let me know what the primary reasons
    for either would be I would very much appreciate it. It looks to me
    like windows xp handles Pics, Videos, Dvds, just fine. I will be
    getting hold of third party software for those tasks at any rate
    anyways. Well anyways I would appreciate hearing your experiences and
    opinions. Thanks very much in Advance....Andy

    I think you've got it right. For the vast majority of users, XP Home is just

    Personally, I do use my PC for TV, with three tuner cards, but use software
    that I believe is significantly better than MCE.
