For me this is more of a lowlight, Windows Media Player with DVD playback will be a Paid For add on. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2...windows-8.aspx

That was my knee jerk reaction also. Then, with some thought, I realized it's a good thing. As pointed out, many computers now don't even have DVD drives, and other computers are never used for playing DVDs. No reason for those Windows buyers to be paying extra for something never used.

Had the same reactions to the Media Center news. When/if it comes to decision time I can buy it for one computer instead of having the cost bundled in with all copies of Windows.

My post should have read Media Center. I do use Media Center on all 3 of my Laptops and 2 of my desktops, although Mostly for DVD playback I do also use it for some Internet TV. Though WMC is not good for my daughters Netbook.
