I have always loved the Media Center user experience since its inception in the days when it came bundled with Windows XP Media Center Edition. Windows Media Center is really a highlight of Microsoft design. With Windows 7, Microsoft has made some minor changes to optimize the UI of Media Center to make it more suitable for touch enabled devices. The noticeably larger fonts also makes it easier for viewing from the comfort of your couch.

Here are the few screenshots from Windows Media Center in Windows 7 Build 7022:
