I'm trying to break into the Linux MCE scene with as little effort as possible (expecting to run into roadblocks but need a good starting point). In order to get hooked, I need to find a tiny form factor box that can fit behind a LCD TV that can serve a HDMI connection. Once I am able to piece that together I can build a decent Core. Oh, and I'm in the U.S. in case that makes a difference to those of you across the pond.
WiFi is not necessary, and no HDD or optical drive is needed; just need the ability to get a decent NVidia card with HDMI or DVI output and have some sort of network connectivity to connect to a Linux MCE Core.
If the Acer AspireRevo ever comes out, would it make a good candidate or is it a POS?
I plan to write a blog about my journey in order to help others along. This site is informative, but daunting to the neophyte.
