    When I clean installed 8 Pro on 10/26 (at around 2AM), I had the Media Center key on the same date, 20 hours later (around 10PM).

    This time, it's 24 hours past the 72 hour notice that was given. Unlike with the Backup DVD, that took 3 & a half weeks to ship (only after contacting MS), if that Media Center key isn't in my email box tomorrow by 12PM, MS is getting another call.

    I love Windows 8, it's a fine product. But the distribution of everything (why is 2 third parties needed?), has been rather shabby, at best. Plus, unlike with the previews of Windows 8 (CP & RP), MS didn't really give the users a lot of instruction, in particular, the need to create a DVD, if for no other reason, to repair their computer if necessary.

    As for the Media Center itself, as long as it's Free, it's worth it. CyberLink has a promo going, those with vanilla flavored versions of Windows 8 (non-Pro), are better off spending the extra $10 for a lot more features. Plus those who installed System Builder versions of 8 Pro. Windows Media Center, beginning with Windows 8, is no longer a Free product.

    You get all that you see for $79.95. WMC doesn't even come close when it comes to features. But as long as it's free, why not install it?
