Linux I'm in a bit of a pickle here. I have an Atom 330-based tiny computer which I use as my HTPC. It performed its job fine running Windows 7 and Boxee, and over the past few months, it ran Mac OS X Leopard with Plex. Now, however, I want to try Linux as an HTPC operating system, but I kind of ran into a roadblock there with Ubuntu 9.10 - so the question is: what is a good HTPC Linux distribution?

He really did say anything Ubuntu based was out of the question.

I myself have set up I nice HTPC with Arch Linux http://www.archlinux.org/ though it might be more work to set it up then Ubuntu or other more graphical based distrobuttions.

For read/write support with ntfs partitions check out ntfs-3g http://www.ntfs-3g.org/ (If your going for Arch Linux; it's available in there repositories.)

Boxee is available in Arch'es AUR http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=24206
