Quote:To me the more relevant point is that people know they'll need to upgrade to something newer eventually and it would be nice to know that the hardware we already have (Echo's for example) can still be useful at that point. Knowing up front that the Echo will be useless when that time comes should at least enter into the decision process in making the purchase.
Quote:It may not have been that simple - for example, it's possible that Microsoft wouldn't allow them to release a brand new product using Win7 embedded with WMC - only Ceton knows the real story.
If Win8 isn't so important, then why didn't Ceton release the Q? After all they could have just used win7 embedded instead :\
