LinuxHome would be better than LinuxMCE. I wish I was half way decent at graphics design, I would put a penguin sitting on a house with a silly grin and a remote in its hand.
I disagree. One of the main stumbling blocks of LinuxMCE is the name. The media part of LinuxMCE is way weaker than the automation part. And looking at my families daily usage of LinuxMCE, the automation part is the one we rely on a lot, not the media part.
I started using this system to get out of "DVD hell". We always had DVD's all over the place that the kids would destroy. I chose LMCE over others solely because of the automation capability. My family is now relying on the automation portion of the system more than the media portion.
