I wrote this guide for the benefit of noobs to Linux installs and/or converts from Windows- http://www.avsforum.com/t/1275302/howto-ubuntu-lucid-10-04-1-maverick-10-10-media-htpc-install-setup-and-mythtv-guides I don't know if you're an engineer and/or CS type, but it helps greatly if you've ever built your own PC and installed your own OS to a blank hard drive (Windows or otherwise). The HOWTO link needs updating for Ubuntu 12.04 and the current Mythbuntu/MythTV, but...

Looks like the Ouya CPU/GPU will be obsoleted at release-http://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-tegra-4-wayne-arm-a15,15261.htmlMaybe Tegra3 will be "enough", but with all the Tegra4 devices on shelves by Q1/Q2 next year, people might feel short changed at launch. If Ouya can deliver at the promised price, it may still be an interesting piece.IMO, quad core at 1.6Ghz or higher is a "minimum", assuming a good GPU, for any machine I might buy/build (mobo, netbook,...
Are you referring to video shows XBMC can use in a default install or through plugins? Examples?
Yes, the Ouya looks promising- just hope it isn't another failed Kickstarter project, reaching for too much at too low a price point. Also, releasing it on time is important- if delayed even 6 months, the CPU will be obsoleted by Tegra4 /Tegra5 and/or something else (new faster OMAPs, ODROID-X Exynos 4412 successor, etc) . Hopefully Ouya can make a running change or new version quickly when needed. Just another example why we need the creation of a standard ARM...
Moving forward, Android x86 may enable us to fill in gaps like Netflix while sticking with FOSS/linux, either through dual boot or Android x86 in a VM, or perhaps booting to Android x86 and using a VM for your daily Linux desktop. Canonical has been talking about Ubuntu/Android integration for years, perhaps using some other method of seamless integration of an Ubuntu desktop with FOSS apps plus Android proprietary apps (i.e. Netflix and other closed...
Perfect theme song for Linux users! The lyrics are a perfect fit for Linux/FOSS itself and its users, who have a "bright future" moving forward The "sinister plan" are the dark forces of proprietary/closed/DRM'd software, whose users are "fooling themselves" within a Grand Illusion
Correct- Flash is NOT dead on Linux. This has been a common misunderstanding. Moving forward, Adobe/Google will update Flash for Linux on Chrome only. The announcement *should* have said "Adobe drops Firefox/NPAPI support on Linux".Firefox uses the older NPAPI for Flash...
