    Hi all,

    Thought some of you might be interested in some more info on Micro$oft's effort at a PC-based home entertainment hub thingy. Set for release later this year. Not convinced myself, but you never know, it could at least open up some new avenues for us HCPC'ers Here's the link.

    This is very good news. Mostly because it will mean that MS will have to design a flexible way of giving application control using a remote or other devices with only a few keys. This and the fact that DVD program makers will want to be compatabel with this will mean that things like girder will be a thing of the past and there will be more consistency with the UI which can only be a good thing.
