Article: Windows 8 and the Home Theater PC

With the official consumer launch of Windows 8 just a few days away, there will no doubtbe a deluge of media bashing the release and some of the more controversial changes that have been made. Whether it’s justified or not, it has always happened with every new OS launch for as long as I can remember. Rather than critiquing the new OS as a whole, I’m more interested in what it means for a somewhat neglected and niche product – Windows Media Center and the Home Theater PC in general.

Introducing, “Vintech”

Welcome to my new project, “Vintech.” This is my personal blog which will be a place used to collect my thoughts, opinions and insights on a bunch of different topics. While I enjoy the work I do on my other site,, I find it limiting to be focused on any one specific topic or area of interest. Vintech will allow me to share content that falls outside of the realm of the emulation scene.

I have owned this domain for over ten years now and during that time it actually hasn’t been used for any one specific project. I look forward to working on this blog as well as taking my first jump into WordPress and I hope that you’ll enjoy it as well!
