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?

Sabayon linux might be something to look into.
http://www.sabayonlinux.org/

It is based on Gentoo but provides also binary packages instead of compiling everything from source.
So no debian package management, but portage is similar.

Sabayon comes with XBMC. I think you could even choose to have it boot directly into XBMC during the installation. At least with the previous version.

Artwork is also very polished.
