...LinuxMCE vs. MythTV. LinuxMCE is the most amazing thing to come out of the multimedia world on any platform, period. But try finding an OEM carrier that will sell this amazing product to you, pre-installed. You won't find many.

In the past there have been few, if any, that have been all of these things. After an extensive beta testing period a new version of LinuxMCE, release 0704, was recently made available to the public that shows how we can indeed have our media center cake and eat it too.

It's nice, and it functions well, but it's only as functional as Windows Media Center Edition plus, it can be difficult to install and configure. Linux MCE, which wraps MythTV up into a nice package and places it squarely on top of the leading Linux distribution Ubuntu -- may be poised to change some of that.
