LOL, how STUPID is that ?
Recently dr flatfish stated that MythTV is too complex and time consuming to
bother with, yet I can install a whole MythTV box from scratch in about 1/2
Here, a 'simple' Windows update takes 5 reboots and took almost
3.5 hours, thats 7 times longer than installing MythTV.
Why am I not surprised ?
