    here's a question (frustration) i'm sure many individuals have with regard
    to the Media Center Edition ...

    why can't we 'upgrade' to this operating system if we already have
    compatible hardware configurations

    i recently purchased a system and it has more 'horsepower' from a components
    perspective then the specs on the pre-packaged Media Center PCs that
    Microsoft is endorsing ... in fact, all i'd require is a TV tuner card which
    i'd be more than happy to purchase and install if i was 'allowed' to
    purchase the software and remote

    why isn't MS simply providing a base prerequisite system (minimum component
    and system settings) then allowing those of us with a high bandwidth system
    to utilize the extras in the operating system?

    Microsoft and the OEM partners have decided this is the way it will be
    marketed, Jack. That's their choice. Believe me, if you do a search on
    this newsgroup, your items have been mentioned at least 100 times. :cool:
