My MK808 works perfectly as a media center for my TV. I have various nfs/samba shares mounted on it and run XBMC with a mirror of my desktop library database. Planning to upgrade to an MK908 quad core when the price comes down a bit and the bugs in the firmware are ironed out. As for a desktop system I could see it working for most folks, however the way that android manages apps would need to be reworked a bit to accommodate non-touch interfaces.. assuming these don't become desktop standard.

KDE is still good.
I'd be more than happy to hear wooshing if it meant sustainable power with less interruptions. Honestly I don't see what the big deal is here. Where I'm at there are 3 sets of train tracks about 100yds from my building and I get along just fine. Can't imagine that a few wind turbines would be that much louder..
On the bright side if it does run for you, it SHOULD be reasonably bug-free. Unlike, say oh idk, the Linux port of Super Meat Boy from HiB4 which came out in December and now six months later is still chock full of bugs (all of them have been completely ignored by the porter since he already has our money)... including a major one which results in the game crashing on the last boss... So, you know, there's that.
Donna always made my skin crawl.. I kinda wanted to strangle her.
But they weren't Sulu.
If my doctor ever tells me that I have "the flew", I'm getting a new doctor.
How exactly do you propose they change a password in a file has already been downloaded by thousands of people?
Some people like to have complete access to their filesystem and not be hindered by their OS babysitting them or worse replacing the missing file later without their authorization. On atleast two occasions I've had to overwrite cp and mv to fix an issue with compiling. Had I been dealing with a microsoft OS I would have needed to jump through a ton of hoops to do something similar if not boot to entirely different OS and do it from there.
I wonder how many people will be executed for this whole ordeal.
I just use it for a 3rd backup of the games I purchase online. Never know when a vendor site is going to simply shutdown or stop offering my key downloads and physical damage could occur to my burned or hard drive stored copies at any time in the future. I could give two shits about the "cloud", if my data ever disappears or they start charging for basic accounts I'll simply go elsewhere. It's a decent enough convenience atm with 5gb of free storage.
There's a box in the bottom right corner of the HIB page for live support.
Failing that you should be able to email them and say you've not yet received your link.
Perhaps there was a problem or delay processing your payment? Did you read the paypal emails?
Curious where do you get your information about the lifespan of these newer sets from..
I've had my LCD tv for nearly 6 years now and it's been on upwards of 12 hours a day for the extent of that time.
Because the person who owns the car is always the driver right?
