To my knowledge yes it can. The only extra things that you can get are Media based options, ie a TV card and the ability to download channel guides and record TV. There are other media options included in the MC edition that aren't in Home or Pro. This link here might explain the difference a bit better.

windows XP Media Centre is just an extra but does everything Xp does I think and the new windows Codename Longhorn is even better.
Try it and buy it.
