What goodies does MCE have? I can't use it because it doesn't support my current tuner, but I'm curious if it is even that much nicer than simply using regular xp.
Sweet! I'll check out that autoGK. Although for now I'm not going to bother compressing them...I've still got 300GB free.
Really the only thing that MCE has that regular XP doesn't have is Media Center. You can play all your movies, music, view photos, even browse youtube (with a plugin) from within it. Other than that there are a few minor things. Like the MCE theme for windows. It is definately nicer than regular XP if you're using it as a HTPC.
