Panasonic opts for Linux ahead of Windows

Consumer electronics giant Panasonic will use Linux instead of Microsoft's Windows Media Centre operating system as a base for multimedia
entertainment systems that combine TV, video, and stereo with computers and internet access.

Panasonic executive vice-president Yukio Shohtoku told a news conference in Japan that it was working with Sony and other Japanese electronic firms on
a Linux-based system.
