Using Origami as a free alternate to Windows Media Center
« on: July 21, 2008, 09:51:12 AM »
Not many of you would know that you could actually run Microsoft Origami Experience 2.0 on your regular Windows Vista machine. Origami offers touch features and is basically designed for Windows Ultra-Mobile PCs also known as UMPC’s which are running Windows Vista.

You would be wondering what’s the use of running a software optimized for touch screens of UMPC’s on a regular machine? Well for those of you running Windows Vista Business which does not have the privilege of Windows Media Center could use Origami to have some sort of similar experience to Windows Media Center. Of course Windows Media Center is much superior to Origami and is completely meant for entertainment purposes of living rooms but since Windows Vista Home Premium and Ultimate editions comes pre-installed in most notebooks and they already have VMC so many of us already use it just to listen music or watch videos using the beautiful interface without having to use its TV features. But what about those who have Vista Business edition? Well there is a good news for them. If you are a Vista Business user who want to have a similar kind of cool looking interface to run your Music, Videos or see your pictures then Origami is not a bad alternate to VMC.
