It runs Linux and while for some this is a good thing – Microsoft still hasnt managed to stop those blue screens completely – for those folk who are used to Microsofts Windows operating system it may seem less friendly…Enter the PMC-120 iRivers Windows Portable Media Center-based media player. While the PMCs control array is not as stylish as the PMPs it is easier to understand what the keys actually do and the addition of a Windows key means that at any point you can get back to the main menu…The operating system runs in an identical way to a Media Center PC. The main plus point is that you can plug straight into a Media Center and not have to worry about downloading additional software…Unlike the Linux-powered version you cant get the PMP in a 40GB model only 20GB.
