    What's everyone's thoughts/experiences with it? Installed it on my desktop and really liking the concept of just using it as a massive media device hooked up to my TV. Great for the apps and such!

    don't think i'll be bothering, the way it sounds they're looking at making it a lot more closed-platform like apple, and i don't like the sound of that at all.

    i'm still perfectly happy with win7, fuck it, i'd be content with using XP still.
