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."

This is true, I'd love to see these paired up with something like the AMD E-450 and a built in DVR right on the set. I'm actually surprised that I can't find HTPC mATX or ITX mobos based around this idea, cram the TV tuner and a good audio passthrough like a standard set top unit would have.

Hell, do a high end version based around the A8 or the upcoming A10. Put Desura and Gameolith on it and sell it as a TV with an integrated game console.
