Vista Home Premium/Business and Media Centre

  Dayglow 15:43 PM 06 Apr 09

Am buying a new desktop and choosing between Vista HP and Business. Latter apparently excludes a 'media centre' but I do not understand if this means I will not be able to listen to on-line radio stations as I can through the media centre in XP. I do not want all the other fancy media capabilities (XBox etc)in Vista HP, but I do want to hear my favourite jazz station whilst working! Or am I totally mad? Should I stick with XP till Vista dies the death?

All advice gratefully received.

You will be ok for radio stations, its the dedicate Media Centre thats missing from business, you still get media player etc.

You can always install Winamp and use that instead of Media Player.
