I've been toying with getting linux MCE for a while now, and think that I'm ready to do it, but I don't know if it's right for me.... I plan on doing the following with linux mce, and I won't really be using all the features. I will be using a a hybrid.
1. Playing videos/DVDs
2. Watching live TV
3. ripping DVDs
4. Recording TV shows
5. using a remote while viewing my media (possibly fiire remote)
6. Possibly using a security camera.
7. Playing music
That's all that the computer would do. Is linux MCE overkill?
Also, is 512 mb ram and a pentium 4 ok for a hybrid?
