This is just way too cool. There is now a Linux Media Center Edition (MCE). I just watched the video demo (below). This is unbelievably cool. I can’t even explain everything it has in it, so you gotta just watch the video. But just imagine getting FREE software that includes functionality for full PC (Linux) functionality, digital video recorder (think TiVo), home theater system control, home automation and security control, IP telephony, and more. You can buy an inexpensive used PC and possibly some extra hardware (like the remote and the TV tuner card) for a fraction of what you’d spend on a new PC with Windows MCE. And with much more functionality, apparently. Man, I wish I had money pouring out of my butt so I could buy the hardware for this (and maybe some other toys as well). Well, figuritively speaking of course. Although if it was enough money…uh, nevermind.
