No. Yes. Depends on how much you know about booting and how good you  
are at reading/following directions. :)

The AppleTV interface is MUCH better for playing music than MythMusic.  
If you already have iTunes on other computers, you get to stream music/ 
movies/photos from those other machines. If you don't currently use  
iTunes, I don't see any reason to use the AppleTV OS.

Netflix is a direct competitor to iTunes movies rental/sales. You'll  
have better luck getting a Wendy's double bacon cheeseburger in a Taco
