Some more info about what/how things will be changed would be nice. Screenshots are also welcome. ;)

I can't speak for others, but my MCE is a "production"-type machine. I'm not gonna install something on it before knowing more about it.

Is the SP3 really a requirement ?

ESET Smart Security comes up with a trojan warning when trying to download. And yeah, screenshots would be nice.

I don't doubt there are no trojans, but I can't be bothered to change the settings in my AV to allow me to download and install it, especially when I don't know what it looks like. I'll give 1.2 a try when you release it.

Check out my XP MCE ehres.dll that has been edited to look like Vista Media Center http://ricktendo64.deviantart.com/art/XP-M...-2008-106010573

bober figured out that you can fix the issue of the warped green button by editing COMMONSTYLES.XML

I will be releasing v2 next year with more glass stuff, new vista fonts and a patched ehshell.exe so you can see the icon in the taskbar (it has also been renamed from "Media Center" to "Windows Media Center" thanks to AMIRZ)
