I just have to say, I really *love* this Linux powered LG TV, from the 
hidef screen and crystal clear pics, down to the beautiful exquisitely 
made hand controller.

Every button is in the perfect place for me.

Linux and extreme quality just go hand in hand, and I think LG would be 
making OODLES of $$$$ from this product, with very low failure rates.

Linux full time, on the desktop, since August 1997
