Currently I donít have an OS yet for the system, and rather than doing my usual trick and use a pirate copy of XP pro Iím going to actually go out and buy an OS for the first time ever.
Iím very much leaning towards buying XP Pro cos its what Iím used to, have always used it since it came out and am very much one of those people in the opinion that Vista is Crap.
However I was thinking because of using a quad core processor plus the PC is mainly going to be used as a media centre hooked up into my home entertainment system, there may be some point Iím missing in using Vista over XP Pro or even XP Media Centre Edition has crossed my mind.
Anyways I have set up this topic to discuss the pros and cons of using each OS in this setup.
This system will mainly be used to store Music and Videos, plus play the occasional games, to give you geeks "hhumm" guys a better Idea of the systems uses, below lists the spec for the entertianent system this PC will be hooked up to.
