I am, at this point, planning to wait for the SP. I know there will be a
number of issues at first and support may not be there 'right away', but
given that I want a general purpose media system I think it'll be worth the
wait for me.
Any code of your own that you haven't looked at for six or more
months, might as well have been written by someone else. (Eagleson is
an optimist, the real number is more like three weeks.)
