Earlier this year The Register expressed an interest in Lindows.com's Lindows Media Computer, and despite the accompanying back-handed compliments,
Michael Robertson himself got in touch and arranged to have one shipped round. So for the past couple of months I've been able to check out LindowsOS
itself, the Lindows.com business model in operation, the hardware, and the whole notion of the 'living room' PC, or the 'one per room' PC.
Don't you just hate it when simple things get predictably complicated? Any one of these really ought to have been enough to be going on with, but you
really can't separate them.
