If what you want is a fast booting, easy to set up media centre then you really should look no further. With a 5400rpm drive I boot from cold in about 12 seconds. The support on the forum and IRC channel is amazing, too. My keyboard driver was disabled in the linux kernel so I went into the IRC channel, said which one it was and 24 hours later it was working! And at a size of just over 100Mb, I would never again use anything else on my media systems.
