    Can someone post the md5 and hash? Curious if it's the same version as the leak from 2 weeks ago

    Does anyone know yet if the license keys have the Media Center Pack? Would try myself but can't get in and can't see a separate download for the pack..

    Nope no keys and an error when I try to buy the upgrade via the add features link in the control panel.

    Got a download to fire finally (Enterprise x64) - no keys (just errors) at this point. Wondering if it's like Win7 and allows you to install without a key and run for 30 days or so ... guess I'll find out soon enough unless I get lucky with the keys.

    Well, no media center kills it off for me, I watch TV on it all day and I cant find any love for any other TV app.

    I'll play around for a little longer then it looks like back to windows 7 until I can get the media center sorted.

    I haven't been able to yet, but have you already tried to see if this may still work for now?

    UPDATE:
    Nope, this will not work in RTM.

    Oh joy! I need Media Center in my environment.. I wonder how long it will take for someone to include it in? The files are probably all mostly identical to those in Windows 7... If I can ever download and install it I'll take a look around..

    @Brink, that key apparently doesn't work on the leaked RTM..
