A few nights ago I said goodbye to Windows XP Media Center Edition.  We had some good times together, but unfortunately, she couldn't give me what I wanted.  So I'm back to Windows Server 2003.  In fact, part of the reason I switched was to test my application with Service Pack 1 before its impending release.  But there are other reasons I prefer 2003, not the least of which is IIS 6.0.  And I've found some good TV apps that work with my eHome Wonder card perfectly well.  I haven't decided which to use yet, as I've been too busy.  But I'll post more on that once I have some more free time. 

I debated going with the x64 release, but in the end decided against it.  I'm very much of mixed feelings there.  I won't know if it will live up to my expectations until I try it.  With RC2 out now I'm even more tempted.  But I don't even know if ActiveSync works in 64-bit land, let alone my TV card.  Hopefully all of that stuff is being worked on.
