Yeah, that review was OK.  It said pretty much what I thought it
would.  It pretty much uses the same points when people argue whether
Windows or Linux (open source) is better.  One is easy and
user-friendly while the other has better features, but requires a
little nerd intuition. ;-)

One think that I did learn is that MCE has video on demand integrated
with MovieLink.  I had no idea of that.  That is one hot app that
MythTV is missing.  And it looks like Tivo will soon have it too with
this pending deal with NetFlix.
