Ok so what does media center have that...

media player don't have. From what I can see about the "media player", it's more than just a player. Excuse my ignorance, I have just graduate from win2K and I am really started on this win7-win10. So win10 media player is not it?

Windows Media Center

The big difference being that with mediacenters "EPG" elctronic program guide and a tv tuner
card yew can record future programs . I found that I can scan the epg for up to 2 weeks.
Disabled vet on a limited budget, cable and or satelite is not in my budget, so I rely on my
roof antenna for local broadcast stations , and my pc for "huluplus" and "netflix".
Windows 7 is the last windows os with media center included.
Of course there are other programs like media center , ArcSoft "total media" is one , Linux
also has their version, however I prefer Windows "media center". I hope this has helped.

Window 7 have all that.

very interesting. I would not expect an OS to have all that. That's real nice of MS. Why they drop it, it must be something to do with cost. I am guessing.
