Wow, instead of the horrible blades we get treated to an ipod cover-art style browser. Seriously, is there anything besides the 'blue screen of death' that microshaft isn't willing to rip off in one form or another? And a big (sarcastic) thumbs up to them too for the update requiring either a HDD or a large memory card. I know they have that whole deal where, if you have a core system or what-not, you can get a refurbished 20gig for 20 plus s&h but $1 per gig on a referb? Sorry, but no. Don't get me wrong, I love what this system is capable of, but come on. Give me a real reason to update the dashboard, not just a rip-off interface and some mii rip-offs or at the very least don't force me to purchase something just to update my machine's OS/interface.
