Any one seen this?

must admit, this is the 1st bad publicity I've seen, and basically this guy talks out of his ass.
MOBO: Asus A8V Deluxe
CPU   :AMD 64 Athalon 3500
RAM   : 1.5 GB Ram
GPU   : Nvidia 6600GT
PVR   : Leadtek Winfast XP2000
Bluetooth dongle for orbitor software on Nokia 6600
This setup works like a charm! Maybe just a little more ram ;-)

I see it now, that's a very old thread by 2 people (labeled as "MCE Mentor" and "MCE Specialist" :D) of which only one hardly even tried lmce.  Doesn't really surprise me at all considering it's on a "Vista & XP Media Support Centre" forum.

Fortunately for them, nobody seems to have any trouble whatsoever setting up windows MCE: http://www.xpmediacentre.com.au/community/vista-media-center-software/  ::)

apparently you havent looked anywhere else. theres tons of worse things being said. this guy even says

I've made similar criticisms. Nevertheless, I'd like to be optimistic that with with the support of the KDE group it LinuxMCE might eventually deliver.

its just a brief forum post. theres a ton of blogs that have much worse to say. i cant really see where he talks out of his ass....he doesnt really even say anything....the one guy used version 1.0 too....so who cares...they fixed a lot of the stuff that guy was whining about. itll take time ....its got more potential/current features than XP/Vista MCE has/will ever bother to implement....other than 3rd party add in software.

ha...thats a good one Zaerc...i had to laugh when i saw "green screen of death". the fanboys like to paint MS MCE as some bulletproof setup....hardly the case by the looks of it.
