Windows 8 Build 8141 Leaks with Media Center Inside
Even before Microsoft released the Windows 8 Developer’s Preview at the Build Conference, Steven Sinofsky had let the world know that although Windows Media Center would be returning with Windows 8, we would not see it in the first pre-release builds. One of the questions that was left unanswered was whether Media Center would return in essentially the same integrated form, or would it return as a stand-alone Metro app? If a leaked copy of build 8141 of Windows 8 is any indication, Windows Media Center is going Metro. If this proves true, is this a positive move for WMC, or a sign of trouble ahead?
Microsoft’s Windows Media Center application has returned to Windows 8 in the latest pre-beta builds of the operating system.
Media Center has been spotted inside build 8141.0.winmain.111021 of Windows 8 and appears to be a standalone desktop application.
