Press Release: Sabayon Linux x86/x86-64 4 Lite MCE

H O P E T O D A Y

Dedicated to those who like order over chaos, to those who like simplicity over complexity, to those who think that less is more, to those that just want more for less. Lite MCE will catch you, based on Sabayon 4, represent what can be the future of our Operating System: just the best of the Out-Of-The-Box, just GNOME and nothing more than what you need for your daily tasks, but what about your free time? We've got it. Xbox Media Center 8.10 just landed on the Linux Planet, so what's better than having it ready to use? And why not, don't you think it's time to prepare your cheap Media Center platform to watch your movies and Internet TV channels? Show off the new Sabayon Linux to your friends, they have no more excuses to not try it!

agghhh...
I just spent the last week getting my HTPC setup with - XBMC and Ubuntu Intrepid after I ran into too many problems with getting XBMC up and running from source on my sabayon install
If I'd known you were working on this - I would have gladly donated my time as tester ;)

Oh well - nothing for it but to download and reinstall the machine :)

Missed that - planet notifications are too far down off the main page. Will have to start monitoring the planet more...
Downloaded it -- and just starting to get the seed up on my torrent server.
Looking forward to trying this out - Sabayon and XBMC - perfect combo :)
