Is Windows Media Centre necessary ?
I tried the WMC Pack after I installed Windows 8 Pro version from torrents. But I didn't find it quite exciting. The best way is always use the simple version if you are a home user. Otherwise, buy some third party product to gain more advantage. http://www.pallareviews.com/1131/windows-8-versions-and-price-comparison/
