MCE PC


C

Chris Smith

I have a recently aqired Windows MCE 2005. I bought it for the decent video
cards, large hard drive, and 1GIG of RAM.
I hate the syrupy layout and would like to know if I can turn this machine
into a Windows Vista Pro machine once the OS is available for home users.
I read that there would be an update path to MCE, but would rather convert
it to Vista Pro.
Any insights are welcome.

Many thanks Chris Smith.

Yes, you will be upgrade to Windows Vista Business and Enterprise Editions
and yes, it will kill the MCE component, so make sure you don't want it. I
don't mind MCE, it does not get in the way, only disadvantage is that you
cannot join a domain in version 2005 unless you upgrade from the 2 prior
versions or use a Hack.

MCE 2005 users would likely be served upgrading to Vista Ultimate (which
includes Media Center), and it also adds domain support. Ultimate (unlike
Enterprise) will also be a retail product.
