3 out of 5 eggs Win8 for HTPC 01/03/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 32-bit (Full Version)

Pros:

So this is probably the fastest OS I have seen. I have had almost every vs of MS except for Vista. It takes a little getting used to how it works since there is no Start button anymore.

Cons:

After installing the OS and then trying to activate the Media Center Pack, the key kept coming up as it was invalid. 3 hours later with Microsoft on the phone, MS stated in order to utilize Media Center you must be running Windows 8 Professional, which then will utilize the Media Center Key. I now get to wait for the Win 8 Pro to try and get my HTPC to work.
