Boston Globe Online / Business / Microsoft's home entertainment center of the future "Microsoft's home entertainment center of the future won't clutter up a living room like a wooden behemoth from the 1950s. It won't even take up as much space as a PC. It'll hum unobtrusively in a closet or in the basement, ignored by everybody.
Until the TV image unexpectedly freezes and Dad curses under his breath and runs downstairs to reboot the server. We're talking about Microsoft, after all."
