[News] GNU/Linux is Ahead of Windows in Media Centres

Hash: SHA1

why Linux MCE is superior to windows MCE

,----[ Quote ]
| * Cost
| The number one reason for choosing Linux, people have reported building a 
| Linux media center with $400 total cost. Top that! Of course if you have 
| unlimited budget this is not an argument. On the other hand what can be 
| defined as unlimited? With equal money you will always be capable of building 
| more. That's why big movie studios use Linux.    
| * A whole house media system build with cheap diskless hardware
| Have some old PC's laying around? You can use them as pxe bootable thin 
| clients for your Linux MCE system, most cheap graphics cards support tv out 
| for a while now. Make a pc pxe bootable over the network and use it as a 
| media director. And you can have one master system serving media throughout 
| the whole house.

LinuxMCE 1.1 Released -- Now Runs KDE

,----[ Quote ]
| There's also word that LinuxMCE, since it works so well with the
| KDE desktop environment, that the guys at the KDE project are
| seriously considering integrating LinuxMCE into their upcoming
| 4.0 release. Now this is HUGE! If combined in the KDE 4.0 release,
| LinuxMCE + Kubuntu would be a free, open-source competitor/aternative
| to Windows Vista Ultimate.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
