Because the same philosophy one applies to a corporate server goes
doubly with a Myth box.
My two frontend boxes, one in the living room, one in the bedroom, I
update as *infrequently* as possible. Once I get them up and running and
I leave them *alone*.
Hmm, what does that remind me of? I know! The cable company. A very
large *corporation*, whose hardware is on very long support time frames
and which seems to sit in my A/V closet for years at a time.
I wish Myth would work like that.
That's why I end up focusing on CentOS, the software I use at work. I
want a MythTV appliance that "just works." I won't get it, but one can
dream, can't one? Hope springs eternal.
