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?

I'm quite confident that the problems I'm having stem from the Intel integrated video chip (GMA950 in my case). On the Ubuntuforums, people with integrated Intel chips are reporting problems with random freezes and crashes, both during normal use and during installation.

My god what an epic, epic fail. Intel's integrated video chips are ridiculously popular. It probably has something to do with the architecture switch in the Intel video driver.

Big bummer.
