    oh i like it , and if for no other reason than having a media center backed by someone big like ubuntu - it will likely replace xbmc for me :)

    kinda a day late and a dollar short if you ask me, like most things about Linux Distro's. Now if Ubuntu as is today came out in 2007 when its popularity started to peak more common curiosities of those looking to avoid Vista, then we may really have something today, in terms of breaking that >1% desktop barrier.
    but whatever, Ubutntu tv looks nice and is a good, albeit late, start.

    media center. in other words, competitive of modern OS's. Ubuntu was always a bit behind in some things at a time when it had a chance to be much more successful.

    Im really looking forward to it. I just hope that it has Media streaming Utilities for our computers that will be DLNA with auto trans-coding. Support MKV or have ability for us to install gstreamer codecs etc like normal. Also the ability to record w/o commercials your favorite shows.
