Commercial software is so tempting

I want to watch MPEGs on my TV. So I took an old computer, added a recent videocard and tried using Linux/MythTV. Sure, I got it working more or less, but the interface was just too slow ..

After that I downloaded an 'evaluation' copy of Microsoft Windows XP media center 2005 and installed that. And for most part it just works.... damn.

Although I'm not going to buy it, even the € 100.- for an OEM copy seems reasonable .... must .... resist .... the dark side.

I think I've had too much exposure to Windows and should be put on a detox program ASAP.
