My son has an XBox. I've seen it occasionally (had to fix the networking on it a couple of times when our router lost its mind). Haven't seen the other things either. I don't have a SmartPhone as I don't want to pay the cost for the data plans. I do have a semi-smart phone. It has Web capability if I want to use it (I don't).
Media Center is proto-Metro and I've used that a few times. For watching movies on the PC, it seems to work OK, but the titles don't seem to be in any kind of order and it hasn't bothered me enough to check and see if that can be changed.
I thought DE's comment was humorous.
