Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical is indeed bringing a TV to CES. But it's not about hardware just yet: Ubuntu TV is a brand new derivitave of Ubuntu, with a full-in TV-optimized UI inspired by Unity, and full-on media center and DVR features. There's a movie, TV and music store, a YouTube app, and of course it's all optimized for a lean-back remote experience. The software will be free for manufacturers to package with their TVs, and Ubuntu says there will be TVs on shelves by the end of the year."

Prepare for these TVs to be locked down to the point that you won't be able to fiddle with anything. The **AA will never let you hook up open hardware to "their precious".
