Well since media is comprised of a few things...

Consumers
Publicators
Creators

The sub categories

Movies
Games
Television
Humour
Action
Drama
Horror


And many others, they probobly put all the software in their liek stupid tv tuning software, enhanced spam, AOL with extra detail, enhance bull sh*t. Just the usual half ass over-priced windows OS.

Why not its better you can use a core for runing ur anti virus and all the background programs and one for the game and in the future they will enable game with dual cores. That statment is hard to beleive. Im getting a new sistem and will go for Dual Core for gaming AMD of course.

Media centre is a program that can open videos, show slideshows of pictures etc, basically a more advanced windows media player. If know how to do those tasks using Windows, media centre is completly pointless. As far as I can tell that's that one program is the once difference from home.
