I thought I saw a version you could buy for linux. Besides, linux itself is
more headaches that windows for most people.
Only those people who've used linux before using mythtv are the ones that
find linux easier to setup on. For the windows versions, you just install
the software program, but for mythtv, I had to learn a heck of a lot about
linux in general in order for it to function. After a year and a half of
mythtv, it still gives me problems from time to time.
