True... However, the integration of home automation in Pluto (and now
LinuxMCE) is kind of cool however for home theater enthusiasts and
geeks. I'd eventually like to look into it, and would really like it
if it were integrated into myth - maybe someday. In addition, some of
the UI designs in LinuxMCE are pretty spiffy. I think the myth UI is
in major need for an overhaul, and I know that it's been on the books
for a while (Ticket #12). It seems most of the pieces are in place,
but just need someone with the time and skills to do it.
Either way, I'm sticking with myth for the foreseeable future -
however, it'd be nice to see some of these features find their way
into the core myth distribution someday.
