LinuxMCE

I hadn’t heard of this Ubuntu-based alternative to media center applications like Windows MCE and PVRs like Sky+. The feature set is incredible, with PVR functions provided via the well-respected MythTV, telephony via the venerable Asterisk, plus home automation and home networking features I have to admit even I hadn’t thought of. I’m still a year or two away from owning my own home, but I can tell you right here and now that this’ll be going on a rig in a cupboard somewhere. I’d highly recommend viewing the demo video, if just for the bizarre commentary and mid-video end. :)
