Given the stated support for remote streaming of media, you might not need XBMC.

Good point, guess I'm so used to XBMC for my media that, well, I'm not sure.. I'm just used to it, when talking media, XBMC seems the natural place to go.

And there's no word on the base platform, yet.

Oops, making assumtions there. I guess the previous collaboration with Canonical they've done led me there.

Now comes the question, How well will XBMC integrate with this? If they both behave well together it's going to make for a damn good HTPC setup. Any word on if this is a completely own-rolled Linux Distro, or is it, as I suspect, an Ubuntu/Debian derivative due to their previous interactions?
