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?

Yes, install Mandriva, then VirtualBox and install Ubuntu 9.10 in VirtualBox and then install Boxee. Then run Boxee in Ubuntu in VirtualBox in Mandriva.
The Ubuntu problem should not exist in VirtualBox and you can still have a familiar distro with everything you like.
