Gates pushing forward the PC & TV as one at CES

PCs integrating more with the TV? “You will be assimilated”, anyone?

I’ve seen photos of Windows Media Center but never actually tried it. Is
anyone actually using it? The ability to integrate with a remote control sounds
quite useful. The ability to get all the viruses Windows does, doesn’t. The
ability to use many of the media Codecs for Windows sounds VERY nice. The
fact it might blow up like Windows does at weird times and probably has crappy
bootup times like a PC doesn’t.

Of course the Open Source community is pushing forward Linux. Me?
When I sit in front of the TV, I really want a remote to control the TV since
it’s been many yaers since I’ve HAD to walk to the TV/VCR to make it
change channels/play/stop/etc
