No new Windows Media Center version this year


Staff member
For the first time in 3 years, Microsoft is not releasing a new version of its Microsoft Windows Media Center Edition software, but instead will release an update which will be smaller than a service pack. Many people were looking forward to cablecard support and other improvements, but it looks like the next version will be based on Longhorn, which is due out in 2006 (beta testing starts this summer). Eventho the news is rather disappointing, lets hope that the update will at least address some of the quirks and add a few new features.
