After experimenting with LMCE, I'm not convinced that Linux is more stable than Windows as I've had multiple crashes and weirdness going on with this product. I've finally got it stabilized somewhat after killing a few Processes that run by default, namely Motion / motion and ScreenSaver.

After having major crashing issues with LMCE, I found that it didn't like my video card so much and same video card was sharing an interrupt with my NIC. I have resolved these issues by going back to my initial Video Card, and installing a new NIC which doesn't try to mate with my Vid Card's interrupt.  My box is very stable now and never crashes.

About Me

I've been working with OpenBSD and Linux for 10 years, but never delved into X-Windows as I use OBSD mainly for LAMP functions. I live in Northern California (NorCAL) and work as a Network Engineer.

LinuxMCE

After having major crashing issues with LMCE, I found that it didn't like my video card so much and same video card was sharing an interrupt with my NIC. I have resolved these issues by going back to my initial Video Card, and installing a new NIC which doesn't try to mate with my Vid Card's interrupt. My box is very stable now and never crashes.
