4.0 out of 5 stars This was free with Windows 7, 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Pro Pack; 32-bit/64-bit; PUP; EN; Upgrade; Full packaged product (FPP); 1 user(s); 20480 MB; 2048 MB; 1000 MHz (5VR-00005) (Software)
Had to replace my Windows 7 MediaPC, and could only buy a Windows 8.1 PC. So, was stuck having to pay £80 on top of the price of the new PC just to compensate for the inadequacies of Windows 8.1. That is so annoying, having to buy a rubbish OS like Windows 8, then pay a premium on top to give it the facilities of Windows 7.

But, to the constructive advice. This will add Media Center to your Widows 8 / 8.1 PC. It also adds some features that nobody wanting a Media PC would ever want, obscure things like the ability to work in 32 additional languages, and some things that would only make sense if you work on a corporate network.

The Media Center seems exactly the same as the one in Win7, so everything looks and works just as it did with Win 7. With Win 8.1, its now possible to boot directly into Media Center, which is exactly what you want if you're using the PC as a full-time media PC. This wasn't possible with Windows 8, unless you bought something like Start8.
