I have avoided this thread,but you must realise Microsoft has thousands
of people working on their media center...Mythtv has a very small amount
of core developer's and maybe 30 or 40 ( that's a guess it maybe
more)people who contribute patches.... If something is bothering you
that much perhaps you should roll up you sleeves and get to work on
it...This is open source after all....
It won't be user friendly to anyone other than geek's,not for the reason
you stated,but because it's an ever evolving piece of software and it
take's a certain skill set to keep it running..
