RIP Windows Media Center: Microsoft's HTPC software won't come to Windows 10

Ian Paul | May 5, 2015
If you rely on Windows Media Center to run your home theater PC then forget about upgrading it to Windows 10.

The impact on you at home: If you're running a Windows-based HTPC that relies on Windows Media Center do not upgrade it to Windows 10. If your current HTPC is on its last legs then you'd better pick-up a Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 PC quickly (plus the WMC media pack if you opt for the latter). If you don't mind losing Media Center, something like the Plex Media Server may suit your needs. You could also look at XBMC, which works on Windows and Linux, including the Raspberry Pi.
