Linux "A year ago, Linux seemed poised to take on the living room, in the form of home media center PCs and systems. But last year's product announcements have not materialized into this year's Linux-based consumer systems. Before losing her job at the helm of Hewlett-Packard, CEO Carly Fiorina peppered a Consumer Electronics Show keynote with word of HP's coming Media Hub, a machine capable of television and display-centric computing that ran on Linux. The machine, announced alongside the company's latest PC-centric Digital Entertainment Center systems running Windows XP Media Center, was promised by fall of 2005. Today, it is nowhere to be found."

"MythTV and Freevo are pretty useless if they don't work with Digital Cable or Satellite TV."

That's funny, mythtv seems to be working just fine with my directv satellite dish. You must have one of those funny steam powered satellite boxes. When oh when will linux learn to support all steam powered electronics.
