No MCE for me?

A couple weeks ago, I got the idea that instead of picking up a new TiVo (my Series 1 departed via eBay long ago), I'd give Microsoft's Windows Media Center Edition a shot. It's got some neat features and I've got an unused PC, so why not?

Apparently "because I can't get it" is the why not -- repeated visits to Fry's Electronics have resulted in the same end result: it's not in stock. It's difficult to buy something when it's not ever in stock. Whether the problem is Microsoft's or Fry's', I don't know, but it's put a damper on my plans to toy with MCE.

And Fry's doesn't sell the remote anyway, so even if the OS was in stock, I'd have to pick up the remote elsewhere. Maybe it would be faster to just file for a business license and sign up as a System Builder with Microsoft. Oy.
