Windows Media Center has been one of the best media management suites available for Microsoft Windows since the days of Windows XP, although the program got mass attention with Windows Vista. Despite the fact that the operating system in question was a big failure in itself, no one ever complained that Media Center lacked in what it had to offer, and hence, it made sense that the media suite would continue to remain bundled with Windows operating system in Windows 7. With the latest Windows 8, however, the Redmond company seems to have taken a rather surprising decision, in that Media Center is no longer a part of the OS – even the Pro version – and instead, available as a separate download for Windows 8 Pro users only.
As was expected, the final version of Windows Home Server Power Pack 3 (PP3) is now available as a free download via Windows Update for systems running Windows Home Server. For those of you who don’t know, Windows Home Server is a server operating system from Microsoft which is specifically designed for home use. It was intended to help families with multiple connected PCs by providing: file sharing, maintaining automated backups (photos, videos, music, documents) plus remote access.
