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?

Ubuntu 9.10

Obviously, what you want is Ubuntu 9.04, or Ubuntu 8.04 since that is what you are familiar with.
Or, you could just try to install Ubuntu 9.10 in text mode.
Otherwise, you should try any of the big distros and choose what you like best. Or, if you really don't know what would be good for you, try this distro chooser:

Anyway, you should open a bug in launchpad or whatever bug tracking system Ubuntu uses.
