Note well the following phrases:
"...scenario for consumers who are looking to enjoy great next 
generation content experiences on their PCs "
"In this way, the [Vista] PC functions the same as any other consumer 
electronics device."

That's it.. a Vista PC is a TV/DVD player that can also run office 

(I do find humorous all the references to viewing medical imagery 
simultaneously with watching protected HD-DVD content.  Yeah, that's 
what *I* want the radiologist  on call doing.. watching a movie while 
he/she studies my CAT scan.)
