And why not?  By profession, my title is Senior UNIX/Linux Systems 
Administrator.  I deal with "enterprise-class" hardware every day.  When 
talking about the filesizes and filesystem sizes involved in a decent 
MythTV installation, along with the IO throughput necessary for watching 
HD, commflagging, transcoding, and nuvexporting... often ALL AT ONCE... 
you suddenly find that you're stressing system and network resources at 
home 24x7x365.25.

The differences are generally those of scale - number of machines, number 
of simultaneous applications, etc.  At home, with a Myth installation, one 
tends to run more with less, so I'd disagree with you on that score...
