    Hey guys/gals,
    So I've looked everywhere I could and I still can't find a place to download
    media center for my XP, 32 bit. I've gone on brothersoft.com, it takes you to
    the microsoft website (same with download.com), but it has nothing to do with
    DOWNLOADING media center. It only TALKS about the latest one, and asks you if
    you want to upgrade to windows 7. Does anyone know EXACTLY where I can find
    the download source? I'm talking... EXACTLY, not roundabout....but the actual
    website where you click "download" and it starts the downloading process.
    Greatly appreciate it!

    Media center for XP was an integrated product,. That is to say, it was
    an XP operating system with the MCE bits built in.

    There's no standalone download just for the MCE bits of it.

    What do you need to do ? There are various open source media center
    projects which look and feel very similar to MCE, most of which are
    Linux builds so you may get improved performance over an XP install.

    HTH
