Windows Apple, Roku, Google, Boxee.... They're not the only ones gunning for your big screen. Microsoft was arguably the first major company to focus on bringing digital content to your TV with Windows Media Centre, which the Redmond company launched all the way back in 2002. It never caught on, but now, the Seattle Times is reporting that Microsoft is going to make another attempt - by putting Windows Media Centre on a set-top box.

Media center was not the first microsoft TV effort. IT was Ultimate TV.

Also, nit picking is disgusting. It refers to picking lice eggs out of another's hair.
