It is launch day, who was able to get one?

I was able to order one from Gamestop, but had to pay $900 for the bundle to do so.

We can't tell you that unless you tell us what the "same way the Xbox does" means.

Do you have a media server on your "PC" or are you wanting to use file sharing?

The early results suggest that the new models aren't all that adept. They certainly have the horsepower but the Xbox Media Player software hasn't been updated and the remote control options aren't there yet.

VLC is available.

The reason they went to towers is because heat is going to be a problem. Placing anything electronic in an "oven" is a really bad idea as the manual reminds. On the third of seven pages of warnings at the beginning of the manual, there's this second caution about console placement:
Xbox Series X manual said:
Do not place the console in a confined space, such as a bookcase, rack, or stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated. Do not place the console near any heat sources, such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or amplifiers.

Using the Xbox One in an environment where the external temperature varies widely and quickly might damage the console. When moved to a location with a emperature difference of 20 degrees or more from the previous location, allow the console to come to room temperature before turning it on. The console's operating temperature is +5oC (+41oF) to +35oC (+95oF).
I imagine that "well ventilated" means fan blown.
