Vista: Windows Media Center Walkthrough

Posted in Microsoft, Video, Vista, Windows Media Center by amonteiro on October 31, 2006

Here is Charlie Owen from the Windows Media Center team showing a demo of the new Windows Vista Media Center (Diamond)

The new interface looks really slick, however I am concerned since they seem to have reduced font sizes a little.

    Oh my God! Call the president of the United States! They’ve also reduced the leading by .23 points and bumped up the kerning by pi !!! What is the world coming to?

    All joking aside, a font size(point) reduction does mean a lot in 10 foot UI’s, especially on the only operating system made for this purpose that reaches the normal consumer.

    It still seems big enough to use on a decent sized plasma though.

    I wonder what kind of computer this was run on, it seems to run a lot faster and smoother then what I’ve seen with XP MCE.
