- The KDE desktop (Kubuntu) can be accessed on a Media Director by:
- A button on the Orbiter menu can be used to bring up the KDE desktop.
- Every LinuxMCE Media Director has a full OS built-in. Today's high-def TVs make great monitors.
- OpenOffice can be used on a Media Director.
- LinuxMCE's screen saver can turn Televisions off (when there's no activity) and back on automatically.
- Firefox is available to browse web pages on Media Directors from the on-screen Orbiter.
- Web pages can be browsed on other Orbiters, as well.
- LinuxMCE automatically creates a network share for each family member so you can put all your regular computer files there, too.
