Updated: SoftSeld Announced at WinHEC? (Nope)
is that Microsoft might have SoftSled coming via v2 Extenders (Pika). Hopefully this is true. Anyone at WinHEC let us know what’s going
This post will be updated when I find out more. Interesting way to do SoftSled if Pika (a hardware platform) in involved. Extender PM's say no go. As usual, Microsoft doesn't understand what they need to do to advance their platform.
Thurrott says: “He
(Gates) also said, cryptically, that Microsoft will be bringing the Xbox 360's
remote media experiences, codenamed Pica, to various consumer electronics
devices, like TVs, as well as PCs. This means, essentially, that the
Vista-compatible Media Center Extender technology in the Xbox 360 will soon be
available to a much wider range of users.”
Update 2: There
are no plans to make a software-based MCX.
My Thoughts: No
