Linux "To be clear about this article's intent, it's not to bash Microsoft, or Windows. Because to be fair, despite using Linux 95% of the time while I'm on the PC, I can find more faults with it than Windows. So, this article's goal is to highlight some of the major pluses of Linux, and also showcase where Windows could improve in the future, should Microsoft take heed of the suggestions."

Use cases:

- Sitting on your sofa with the Laptop and want to hear that YouTube video being watched through the Sterio system which has its reciever accross the room.

- You are an AV guy for an institution which frequently has guest lectures showing up at 5 mins till start with "Oh by the way can I use my Netbook/Nettop/Tablet/MID/PDA/UMPC/Macbook/Slate/Smartphone up on the screen and through the sound system and btw I don't have the custom proprietary adapter that is needed to connect to what is standard.

- You have a back yard which does well when hosting a barbecue, cookout, pool party or just plain events. You install as part of a landscaping remodeling project all weather outdoor speakers.

All of these cases could be extensively simplified with the use of DLNA compliant devices.
