I quote from an online magazine article I was reading:

"Linux can do everything Media Centre can do, but no one’s gone out and 
made a dedicated distro that does all this, and has a nice 
consumer-friendly interface. Sure the installation will be harder -- 
much harder -- but there’s plenty of PC tech people with the savvy to 
sort out that end of the bargain."

Do you guys know of anyone thinking or contemplating doing this with 
Linux? Microsoft Media Centre can only be bundled with certified PC's, 
meaning I could basically never sell one, because my company is too 
small fry for Microsoft, but what if there was a Linux distro that is 
*JUST* set up for media content?

If no-one is doing this already, what do you think interest will be in a 
project like this?
