Nice to see that they're making it touchscreen-compatible. I built an HTPC
a couple years ago with a Dell all-in-one touchscreen system and it worked
fairly well, but not having a "back" on-screen button in Myth or XBMC made
it a little cumbersome.
I found this very interesting:
Besides using Unity 2D, Ubuntu TV also relies heavily on Canonical's other
innovation they like, Ubuntu One. With Ubuntu One integrated into Ubuntu TV

Ubuntu One is their cloud service, right? So, all my media is uploaded to
the cloud? First, I have 30GB of music, 2TB of recordings, and 1TB of movie
