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?

- True "bridged" network devices without scripting tunnel devices by hand. Bridged in addition to NAT networking should have been in the first draft on that one.


Hi, I haven't touched that in ages with VirtualBox. It just works in recent releases. I can't comment about your other problem, but bridged mode is just a down arrow away!

It's called Host Networking, which might trip people up. But it's actually bridged, using the virtualbox network filter driver in the host, as opposed to a separate bridge interface.
