What's the point of ....

....... Microsoft Media Centre? Am I in a minority of 1 when I brand it a bloated piece of frippery that's neither use nor ornament?
The Lord knows I've tried. But .... it's black screen promises much and delivers bugger all. Incomplete libraries in W7 with random music albums not categorised, likewise with photos, live TV that just doesn't start, Sky TV Player that keeps telling me I need Silverlight when I've already got it and on and on!
It's going into the bin along with that useless Libraries thingy as soon as I find a way to dismantle the lot.
That's better.

For my own use of a PC I tend to agree.
