I am impressed with the Windows 7 Media Center stuff.  I converted my HTPC to windows 7 and it has 
run flawlessly ever since.  It appears that the design team spent a lot of time fixing bugs and 
making media center work the way it is supposed to.

There are still things that I wish didn't work the way that they do, but at least it works now. With 
Vista I battled with Media Center the entire time I used it.

Just as an aside, I decided to use a Solid State disk as the boot drive.  What a hoot!  It is fully 
booted in about 7 seconds, to the login prompt.
