I fell in love with the LinuxMCE video
and the idea of total control of my life with one remote.
On a dedicated Compaq I installed Kubuntu Feisty,</font></blockquote></div><br>Sam, I am a relatively simple end user, but from my recent experiences, but IMHO, Gutsy is a big improvement over Feisty:<br><br><a href="http://www.google.com/search?q=mythbuntu+gutsy&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a">

You are going to get a much longer support cycle with Gutsy than Feisty. IMHO, you don't want to tweak Feisty now, only to find out that the community is moving away from Feisty and toward Gutsy. In my experience, when you go to a forum and ask for help, the first thing that the Ubuntu users there will do is ask what version you are running, and then they will give you grief if you are running an out-dated OS. Plus, Ubuntu really makes lots of progress between versions, and so you might really be more satisfied with the performance you get on Gutsy.
<br><br>good luck! Please let us know how you are doing.<br><br>
