I have to say that I had a slightly rocky start, but thanks to mm1352000 I was set straight and now things seem to be running smoothly.
At present I have a "vanilla" install. It seems to be working fine and I am slowly working through configuring the various libraries for photos, movies and music. This is a little hard, especially given that I am so used to Windows 7 MC, however so far so good.
One question I'd like to throw out to the forum, is what skins does everyone use? I've looked at a few, however they all seem very "busy" and graphically intensive. I'm looking for something a little more subtle.
Are there any suggestions out there?
