    R.I.P., Windows Media Center


    Windows Media Center is dead.In a private meeting this week at the Build developers' conference in San Francisco, a Microsoft executive confirmed to me that there will be no update to the company's Media Center software for Windows 10.
    The decision is a disappointment to the small but incredibly vocal army of Media Center enthusiasts, who had held out hope that a Windows 10 Media Center add-on, similar to the one offered for Windows 8, might appear at the last minute.
    That's not happening. Any PC that is upgraded from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 will lose the Media Center functionality, and there's no way to get it back.

    The Xbox Music app is not my cup of tea, but I'm trying to get used to it...

    I've always thought WMC was terrible anyway so I won't miss it.

    WMC is just about the best TV app I've ever used, it looks like I'll need to start looking at the alternatives again.

    The only time I use Media Center these days is to stream stuff to my TV. While I can understand that this is not good news for some I can't see me begin affected by it.
