    Isn’t this nice of you CM. I can’t think how mankind survived without this for so long!

    Windows Media Center has been around since Windows XP, i.e., Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. WMC is also available in Windows Vista Ultimate Edition. So, no upgrade really needed there.

    Oh, is this so you don’t confuse your dad’s TV for your computer monitor again. Useful I guess.

    The difference? The way I understand it is a ‘monitor’ is any standalone device with a screen used to display output from a computer, therefore a television could be used as a ‘monitor’, what you have listed here as ‘monitor’ should be ‘crt monitor’ and ‘flat panel’ could be ‘flat panel monitor’ or ‘lcd monitor’ or ‘oled monitor’ depending on the tech.

    I was about to correct you, then I noticed who I was replying to.

    Should have done one marked “PC” not “PC” for all the old folks and young kids.
    If I see one more add for a laptop or notebook being sold as a PC I’ll bust up a crt !

    “Monitor” applies to all of those except the projector. A TV is a type of monitor. “Flat panel” is a modifier that can apply to any type of monitor.
