My new laptop comes with Windows Media Centre. I havent used it much yet. has anyone, and for what?

Just wondering is it as good as iTunes or Windows Media Player for storing/playing/burning my music collection? I havent installed iTunes yet, though I imagine its probably better...?

It does not do much in my view that cannot be done with existing facilities in XP or with programs which come with things like cameras.

WMP is available without the Media centre edition. I have the XP MCE and it adds a bit of glamour perhaps and a bit of easy navigation but little in the way of functions.
