Hi all,

I am purchasing a new PC and although I have read up on this, I havn't found the specific answer that I am looking for.

I just want to know if Win. Media Center 2005 is an extension of XP.


-Is WMC2005 the same exact OS as XP home, but with added functionallity for handling ones media?

-If it is not, what are the differences?

I know what WMC2005 handles as far as image editing, music handling, etc... all im concerned about is if I purchase a PC with WMC2005, will it have the same functionallity as XP Home?

If anyone knows of any articles that deal with this question, I would appreciate that as well.

thanx in advance.
