Mr. Soper has done another outstanding job. Unleashing Vista Windows Media Center will have a place on my shelf of reference books next to his A+ and Digital Photography books. I am not a computer expert and finding information and making things work is very time consuming at the very least. I was interested in integrating my computer to the TV and video world - specifically High Definition/Blue Ray technology and Unleashing Vista appeared at the right time. Mr. Soper seems to understand our needs and how we think. He provides the insight,details, source information and valuable useable links needed to complete a project. He makes no assumptions and covers everything in detail and always seems to anticipate my next question. The only prerequisite is enthusiasm. Mr. Soper brings everything else to the table. Easy to read!
I thought this product was very informative and provided excellent avenues for Windows media creations.
Well done, and thorough. Quite out of Date (that's the reason for dropping it 1 Star> However, it is still very helpful up through Windows 7 anyway, and there is little else (I could find) that even addresses the WMC in any useful detail.
