Windows Fiji - Screenshots

Windows Fiji - Screenshots

Summary: The Fiji update to Windows Media Center, destined to be part of Windows 7 with a more than likely chance. These screenshots reveal very little about Fiji, because there's very little to report on. As far as I can see, it's exactly the same as it was in Vista.

    Typical Windows. Who wants to see the Task Manager in their
    living room? If this were really well done there would be no
    need for that. And the rest is, well, typical of Windows.
    Clunky, appears hard to use, and uninspired.

    Do not assume that the Task Manager is "part of" of the set up. The author included it here just to explain how much memory it consumes (though, he/she did not make his point appropriately, I guess).

      It's not part of setup, and you're right - I did just want to show how much (or little actually) it consumes. I did make it clear in the caption though:

      [i]"Considering everything that MCE and Fiji is and has, it uses just under 50MB of memory space, which for a Microsoft product of this complex nature is nothing short of a miracle.

      Make sure you check out the CPU usage at the bottom of the Task Manager though ;-)"[/i]

    While just about everyone else (except Gruffydd) has blasted Microsoft, Windows, Vista, and Fiji, no one has taken the time to notice the errors that the author has clearly made. For example, perhaps you did not notice any changes with media center, because this is still software in development. While most Microsoft applications are memory intensive, they are only created like that to ensure stability. (Start at any Microsoft Office program, and look at the memory usage if you don't believe me.) As for the CPU problem, the author failed to mention that it was NOT media center using all the CPU power. Look at the below quote directly from the screenshot's caption.

    "Considering everything that MCE and Fiji is and has, it uses just under 50MB of memory space, which for a Microsoft product of this complex nature is nothing short of a miracle.

    Perhaps he was running another program that was using the CPU. But as you can clearly see in that screenshot the Windows Media Center modules and components were NOT using the CPU.

    Windows Media Center Modules and Components
    ehmsas.exe
    ehrecvr.exe
    ehsched.exe
    ehshell.exe
    ehtray.exe


    Don't believe me, take a look for yourself.

      Obviously not a know it all; this is the RTM'd product. It's finished being made - this is in fact the final product and not a beta.
      zwhittaker
      • Omg.. Really?

        Allow me to sledgehammer this nail...
        No one cares.. the point is, the author has blasted a perfectly normal product which I use without any lags or problems, maybe it's because he didn't have the ability to understand what exactly task manager was reporting as a CPU hog. No one cares that I made a simple mistake. (Well, except maybe for you, who decided to take it upon themselvs to blast me, a computer expert, a long time beta tester of Windows itself, and most importantly a human being)

        Forgive my apparent rudeness, but let me define the word HUMAN for you.

        [b]Human:[/b] A life form that is imperfectly perfect. It's mistakes make it perfect as it is capable of learning from them. Most advanced and complex creature on the planet earth.

    IT seems MS has lost its way, what is this new media center all about? no innovation at all. It just reiterates the point that MS just follows someones path of innovation than trying to bring some kind of innovation by themselves.

  • RE: (Windows Fiji - Screenshots)

    We all realize the problems MS apps and OSs have problems. So why don't the whiners and complainers that are so smart do us all a favor and submit their ideas that are so innovative and inspiring just as I have seen several do in past to MS to see what happens? Lead, follow, get out of the way but stop the whinning!

    Because MS, apparently thinking 'they' know best doesn't seem to do anything with user suggestions. If they did, please explain to me why the "Delete" context menu item is STILL right above the "Rename" option? Why didn't they add tabbed browsing to Windows Explorer? Why can you still not customize the context menu? Why does MS insist on changing, moving and renaming everything and generally making it harder to use their OS? Why did MS break apart all the options for the Desktop/Display properties and rename "Properties" to "Personalize", What's so innovative about that? Should I go on?

      Windows 7 petal, even though it's only at M4, it's pretty cool actually :)

    Whats the idea of the blue screen with blue script or can this be changed to what color you want or can see?
