Nice to see you back on the list, Jarod.

All my MythTV boxen (5 of them) have been running 64-bit versions since 
the moment I upgraded the hardware from 32-bit CPU's. Switched from 
MythDora to MythBuntu when Dennis showed a reluctance to build a 64-bit 
spin of MythDora and move to a DVD, but being a RedHat/Fedora/CentOS 
guy I feel just a little lost. Might move back at the next release.

Just as a side note: I had difficulty installing MythBuntu from the MythBuntu 
spin, but no problem installing MythBuntu as an application onto 8.10 and 
9.04 systems.

I'm looking at Fedora 11 now, and I notice that with each release Fedora 
acts a little more like Ubuntu. Why is that?
