Question What OS do you use at home?

I think most will be answering XP Home or Pro editions but I thought some other might use Apples or even Linux/Unix...

Just interested

How much is that XP Media Centre Edition mate? Can you buy it without hardware or do you have to buy it with hardware?

I can use that for the 360 I have still (just) but I didnt realise it was a separate Window's OS altogether...

STi6 it's a poll mate

I would say it's pretty good - i'm sure you can get from ebay for only a couple of quid - if not let me know and i should be able to copy mine for you.

only thing i would recommend is that you get a remote-control for it...
most remote controls for pc's will work with it - i use the 'streamzap' one.

(also, IF you have a tv card check the manual to see if it will work with media-centre.)
