It is its new but its really not much as what its said to be to me its more of a "Windows Media Center Xp 2005 with an all new shell and visuals which suck alot of blood out of your computer" Some I think will agree Ive bought it and now am stuck with it but I feel like having my XP royale back in Media Center I loved vista 3 days ago when i got it now after exploring it ive found nothing more then what I found in XP Media Center. Office 2007 I didnt like much,Office 03 pro is much better and ive gone back to it. One Care is pretty good Less Memory sucking then Norton or Mcafee and still gives the same stuff,i have to say good job on it!. My score. Vista-8/10-Its not bad its pretty good but not much diff to XP MCE office-6/10 I didnt like the layout and it was more "Wierd" to use then 2003 since it has new things that we alll have used tio the old style since 1995 otherwise it gioves the same thing as 2003 so if you really dont need it dont buy it it wont do much more then 2003 hell i havent even used everything in 03 fully cause i dont need it. One Care-9/10-I like it.Its good.
