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?

If you want a desktop to just work, you should only use stable software, man.
People use testing software, which are advertized as testing software: for tests, which means: "please help us test this software, which probably is buggy" and then they complain that it does not work!
Man, if Windows development was open and they had a portal where you could download all their testing stuff, you would probably be crying!
People complain and they don't even use the bug tracking system.
Well, maybe linux is not for you. It's open and documented but if you can't read, it won't help you.
