I have a vaguely related question:
I have a number of PCs on my boat network (mostly Linux, a couple XP Pro & Pocket PC). I need to run other applications on them such as office tools, engineering apps & navigation software, etc. I would like to be able to launch a MCE client application (similar to Mythfrontend) that can run alongside my other apps. Is this likely to be possible in the near future? It would really be a hassle to have to re-boot into a Kubuntu MCE environment just to access my media - then back to Ubuntu or XP for everything else.
Thanks in advance for your wisdom!
