Oh man where to start. could you be a bit more specific. Win 7 has a decent WMP, is as quick as xp, has touch screen capability built in, and many other things. Most of all its stable, can be made to look cool and will run in xp compatibility mode (if your comp supports it)

Good luck

You can use it without a problems. Perhaps if you have MKV or other formats, you need to install some codecs. I use Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs and they works fine.
Look through the sections here, you can find a lot of information

Thanks very much for the replies so far. I will have to give some of them a go. I do have a lot of media so the codecs would come in handy so that i can play most of them i hope. I plan to install windows 7 onto another PC and run it as a media centre and see how i get on.
