Windows Media Center: Another reason to like Windows 7

Martin was pleasantly surprised to find Arrested Development among the Internet TV offerings on the Windows 7 Release Candidate

The other day I was editing an album of photographs of our local Memorial Day parade using Picasa on the Windows 7 Release Candidate on my laptop at home. As Picasa's slideshow is merely serviceable, I wondered what the slideshow would be like using Windows Media Center, so I fired it up. It wasn't bad at all -- kind of Mac-like, in fact.

At some point, Media Center asked to set up Internet TV, and I said yes. I was pleasantly surprised to find Arrested Development Season 3 among the on-demand video content, as I had only seen Seasons 1 and 2, and one of my daughters had the DVD of Season 3 in New York. Score two points for Windows 7.
