I have got past alsmot all of my thecnical issues with LinuxMCE but now I'm comming up with a lot of issues with the userinterface.
I have a Windows Media Centre PC but I am not a fan of microsoft. I hate the idea of all the DRM they are putting into windows and I want to move away from using propitery software I have no control over.
Although LinuxMCE is starting to make me change my opinion of windows media centre. A lot of the features I took for granted are simply not present in LinuxMCE. I have created a comparision documenting my exprences.http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Metcarob's_Windows_MCE_vs_Linux_MCE_Comparison
I want to try out the advanced features on LinuxMCE, the media follow me, home security, home control, etc. but first I need to know it can do the media stuff that windows can.
I have a feeling there is something I am missing. Are there any alternative UI's for LinuxMCE that I can switch to?
See my comments on your Wiki page...there is a big difference. Yes there are some alternate UI's in development. But as Thom says here LinuxMCE delivers its UI across mulitiple devices already...touch based PDA's, mobile Phones, Laptops, in-wall Touch screens and Media Directors. The Windows MCE UI is limited to the so called '10 ft UI' and does not scale to other devices at all.
...and then of course there is the fact that LinuxMCE is far more than just a MediaCenter...thats just one part of the functionality that LinuxMCE delivers.
