Cyberlink Media Suite 10 is a very simple software solution. It user friendliness is enhanced by the launcher called PowerStarter. You launch it, it guides you through the different steps asking you what you want to do. It then launches the right software among the 11 enclosed with the adequate settings. Neat. I saw it during the press conference and for consumers who want a simple solution, it wil surely be useful.
