This past Saturday, we learned that Windows Media Center would not be included in Windows 10, without much detail behind the decision. Today, in a tweet by Gabriel Aul, we have learned that it was due to decreased usage.
“We can confirm that due to decreased usage, Windows Media Center will not be part of Windows 10,” Aul said on Twitter today. “If you have WMC now, we’ll have a DVD option for you in an update later this year,” he adds.
Without going into specifics, Aul confirmed that the company plans to add a DVD playback option for Windows 10, removing the need for a third-party program. According to Aul, the main scenario people used Windows Media Center for was to play DVDs.
