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.

- Start at boot support for VMs. I run a groupware server VM guest under my workstation. I need that VM to autoboot when the host system reboots. This has to be possible without scripting and juggling between account priviledge.


Virtual Box already does both. I have 4 VMs starting on boot on a Ubuntu Server running Virtual Box. All of them connected with bridge networking (without scripts).
