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?

Am I the only one who has never had any major problems with Ubuntu on the desktop? Windows gives me headaches all the time. Various apps will crash the system, I get constantly high CPU usage that overheats my laptop, the UI seems very inconsistent (once you have apps from all over the place), and I find it to be very unintuitive compared to Ubuntu. A Mac would be nice, but they're ridiculously expensive.

And would burn your balls off on its way to your wallet, too.
