Got my furniture today!
On Sunday, I also picked up a new 64-bit system. It’s a HP Media Center Photosmart PC.
It came with Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 which is kind of cute (spiffy and smooth animations) and a boatload of OEM software. If people think that most usable Linux distros are like Frankenstein, e.g. various different UI pieces thrown together in a hurry, try this - it’s so craptastic; will post a screenshot later. Ended up installed the x86_64 version of Fedora Core 3 to have a real 64-bit operating system.
