I'm looking for a linux based media center, any recommendations?

I need some new gear and debating if i should just get a mac mini or something else and throw linux on it, whattya think?

Hi tgtest,

You might want to check out Boxee:

It could be just what you are looking for, whether you use it on a Mac mini or a PC or other device.

You simply MUST check out XBMC. Sure, it started as a replacement for the original XBox, but it's evolved into a great solution for a media center.

For all the hassle and upkeep, if you're an iTunes user, I've found that the AppleTV leaves me with more time to watch and less time messing around.

Check out LinuxMCE.  There are others but I heard LinuxMCE is fully boss.
