Summary: was very impressed right at first. used to link my "dumb" flat screen to my media server. After two year of playing converted movies from a separate hard drive this unit is shutting down due to overheating. despite being completely stand alone it developed this issue.
Summary: So.... there is no more support for the linux based OS, they just sent out the email... SO now I have this box that is well... worthless that I bought less than a year ago. Tried to return it, but of course Amazon wouldnt let me (this was a while back) and now I am left with...
Summary: Running Linux Mint, 32 bit version Very responsive as the web client. Basically, running 2 applications; FireFox and Pidgin. Removable wireless antenna is a nice touch. Very fast boot time, and with 2GB RAM an extremely capable PC. Will be buying more.
Summary: Installation went pretty straight forward. The initial boot up is a little different than a normal Linux load but I've never had Linux preinstalled before. I bought the unit to use with a Samsung TV and replace a Pentium 4 minitower running Ubuntu Linux 12.04 as well.
Summary: An expensive and powerful way to help me learn Linux. I had been playing around with Lubuntu on a Raspberry pi and wanted to get some experience with a richer Linux implementation like Ubuntu.
