Do you mean the HDHR for $99? That's the best price I've ever seen (for the 
dual-tuner unit). It's about half what I paid for mine (if you include 
shipping), but of course I ordered when they first came out.

Of course such polls are "entertainment", not science or research in any way. 
The site itself is more likely to attract Linux users than anything else, and 
many Windows Weenies might be vague on precisely what "HTPC" might mean.

I agree that splitting the Windows users up by version, while leaving "Linux" 
as one monolithic block, makes no sense, unless you are trying to get "Linux" 
to come out on top.
