Sorry to revive an old thread, but I've been away from the HTPC forums for a while (everything was stable, I was happy, blah blah blah).
I have 5 Win 7 HTPC's in my house, and bought my first Win 8 box. Ugh, no likey. I didn't realize the non-pro version didn't/couldn't have WMC, which I want/need.
Soo, big question is, do I pay for the upgrade to Win8 Pro, to get the add-on WMC, or do I downgrade back to Win7, where things are happy, comfortable and familiar?
I've seen all the rants and raves re loving/hating Win 8, but I finally own a copy of Win 8, and stuck between going up and going "down/back" to win 7. Help, advice, links to cheap Win 7 downloads or keys?
