Can I buy LinuxMCE products?
« on: May 20, 2007, 11:32:38 pm »
Hello all,

The linuxmce.com web site, under the heading "Why buy a licensed LinuxMCE product? What's the difference?", implies that there are commercial versions of Linux MCE available for purchase. However, after googling around for awhile I can't find any distributers or manufacturers of such a product.

Is anyone aware of a turn-key product based on Linux MCE that I could just purchase, plug in and be up and running within minutes?

Thanks!

Hi,

Take a look at www.plutohome.com to see the Pluto system - linux-mce is based on Pluto and is aimed more at commercial installers (although is also has a following of private individuals to). Another place to see someone delivering a commercial product around linux-mce is www.fiire.com (although in this case its standard linux-mce on custom hardware).

Pluto said I could import all the pages from their wiki to provide a starting point, which I did, and just bulk replaced "Pluto" with "LinuxMCE".  That page you mention must be some legacy stuff from Pluto that doesn't apply to LinuxMCE.  LinuxMCE has no commercial ties, nor any official hardware.
