I would sure like to see a new heading in this forum that is devoted strictly to hardware. I have not seen anything in this forum or on the linuxmce site for a total cost for both the server side and client side. I know we all don't want to buy a fiire box(es) for our home setup. So, I am requesting a new heading devoted strictly to hardware. A few good subheadings could be known working hardware, vendors, etc. I think that I stand in a lot of other's people shoes when I want to know the most reasonable cost for a home setup that is both appealing and easy on the pocket book. As it stands today I have over 35,000 mp's and hundreds of iso images of DVD's that is continually growing. I just want something that is simple and works well so that we can watch movies in any of our rooms or listen to music.
