OSNews, Generic OSes First of all: the entire OSNews team would like to wish you a very merry Christmas. Even if you're not religious, there's always porn on the internet, right? Anywho, these wishes are a bit tardy, but that's because I've been fighting a battle with my computer the past few days trying to find a way to record Minecraft footage so I could make a Christmas wish from inside my creations - a losing battle, so it would seem. So, for Christmas, I have two OSNews Asks items for you to ponder. First, help me record Minecraft footage. Second, and this is of more practical use to myself and probably others as well, help me to set up an automatic backup solution that backs up the contents of one folder on an external hard drive to another external drive.

That is unfortunate but I still fail to understand how did you jump to the conclusion that Linux-based HTPC solutions are not suitable to anyone just because it did not work particularly well on your setup despite plenty of evidence pointing to the contrary for other people all over the web.

My problem is NOT that Linux did not work for YOU but rather the underhanded comment saying that Linux is not an option for media centers. If we're taking anecdotal evidence here at face value then Windows must be a failure as a HTPC as it is nowhere near this household whereas XBMC has been working flawlessly for quite some time now. See? I can make bold and baseless comments as well... ;)
