LXer: why Linux MCE is superior to windows MCE

Published at LXer:

Linux MCE is superior to windows MCE * Cost The number one reason for choosing Linux, people have reported building a Linux media center with $400 total cost. Top that! Of course if you have unlimited budget this is not an argument. On the other hand what can be defined as unlimited? With equal money you will always be capable of building more. That's why big movie studios use Linux. * A whole house media system build with cheap diskless hardware Have some old PC's laying around? You can use them as pxe bootable thin clients for your Linux MCE system, most cheap graphics cards support tv out for a while now. Make a pc pxe bootable over the network and use it as a media director. And you can have one master system serving media throughout the whole house.
