I tried the previous version of LinuxMCE and I was not impressed at
all.  Sure it can do all the things the demo video said, even "out of
the box" if you have very specific hardware installed.

Still, this new version does seem pretty sweet.  I like how it
supports On Demand, thats a plus.  I may try it again, especially if I
get some of those zwave light control modules.  I've always thought it
would be cool to have the lights adjust automatically when a video

I wonder if I could install this on a frontend and use my existing
backend....  If I can, then I may try it.
