A friend of mine just showed me the MCE video. I am amazed.
He also said that to achieve all the features shown would take a lot of effort but that a relatively simple system is quite achievable. He also commented that I might wish to wait until the 8.1 version is out.
With the understanding that it is a community project and that it will be ready only when it is ready and not before.
Is there a ballpark ETA? Even if there is no target ETA, Does anyone remembers how long it took to go from the first alpha to a release candidate?
I ask this question because I recently bought hardware to build a W#$%$## MCE and for what I have researched the motherboard does not work very well with 7.1 but works well on 8.1.
Thus, I want to evaluate waiting vs. buying a new one.
I would appreciate any help as I have very little Linux experience and would like to face the least amount of hassles.
