    …c’mon, now! I like Media Center and all, but now the marketing guys are just making stuff up. Seems like the biggest gripe at TGB has been how slow MSFT has been at providing Media Center upgrades.

  2. From a PC point of view, Brad, I’d totally agree. But since stepping into the A/V industry, I’ve been very surprised. While what MS is doing now may seem the tortoise to you, it is very much the hare in the A/V biz. Shocking, I know, but it’s the truth.
