Q: (from Bill)

Can you share with me some info on Windows 8 Media Center? I need to see if that will be available for the Enterprise sku...

 

A:

Here are some blog entries from Steven Sinofsky:

I found the section about 3/4ths the way down the first blog entry to be very interesting:

and everything in Windows 8 Pro will be available to Windows 8 Enterprise (from the bottom of Brandon LeBlanc’s Announcing the Windows 8 Editions blog).

  • If that's true about "everything in Windows 8 Pro will be available to Windows 8 Enterprise", specifically about Media Center, then somebody needs to update the Wikipedia entry for Win8 Enterprise. It shows a big "No" under Windows Media Center and "Via an add-in" under Pro.
