@wegl: I did this during my first foray into the world of SSD technology. I was using win7 and a 30GB SSD. When I did it, I booted into safe mode upon new install, created a temp admin user with a different profile location. using that logon, I used xcopy to move the user files to the new drive. I then created a 'hard link' from c:\users to my HDD drive path. There are some good instructions online to do this. It was a real pain in the butt when that spindle based drive failed. Something to consider.
@aL_: As an owner of the unit i can agree with most of the points you made here. I find it cumbersome to hover, and the experience needs to be more pervasive. The one place I would like to see the kinect experience incorporated in would be Media Center Extender.
Brian Regan comedy sketch about the directions for microwaving Pop Tarts as if the toaster solution is just too onerous to wait for.
. Brian Regan is soo funny.
@CKurt: The unit doesn't recognize fingers. Another option would have been to use a 'push gesture' to select, but that's probably patented by Canesta. Now that they are a part of our family, we may see that come in a future dashboard update.
I have also heard rumors of it being compatible with mediaroom. I hope this is true, as it means my son will finally be able to control his own television viewing experience even with his cerebral palsy.
