A debate that has raged since Microsoft launched the SDK for Windows Media Center is should Media Center apps look and feel like native Media Center or should they have their own look
Microsoft are of the opinion that users of Media Center applications do not want 3rd party apps to look like or work like Media Center itself. This is at odds with 99% of the feedback I’ve ever recieved as a Media Center developer
I like to see developers come up with their own feel for big application like Big Screen Photos, but for smaller addins I like the standard Media Center feel, I don’t see the need to develop a whole look and feel for a simple application.
Steven is has put up a vote on the forums for you to have your say and then he can pass on the feedback to Microsoft
