Matt Goyer — Microsoft MCE Evangelist
Matt Goyer ‘s blog – A completely egotistical storyline of my life Matt Goyer has got it figured out and is an incredibly valuable asset to Microsoft’s Media Center team. In his post here he takes the time to address numerous recent criticims (my own included) of the MCE product.
This kind of open dialog is refreshing, engaging, intellectually stimulating and is a fine example of how to evangalize your product. The transparancy is really great coming from Microsoft who in the past has not been as communicative regarding it’s releases and products.
A lot of the recent criticism is pretty bogus and it’s great to see Matt call this out. I mean one critic TDavid was complaining that it “took an embarrasing amount of time to figure out how to exit MCE.” Good grief man, how simple is to click on the x in the upper right hand corner like every other PC application known to man? Even my own criticism about my music taking too long to load is probably pretty inapplicable to 99.9% of users. Matt’s right on this.
It is also nice though to see even Matt provide his own criticism at the end that the product doesn’t support HDTV cable.
Nice work and keep it up.
