HP Smacks MCE2005
Via eHomeUpgrade, an article in the New York Times suggests that HP will come out with their own media PC called the "HP Media Hub". As opposed to other HP media PCs that come bundled with Microsoft's MCE 2005, HP will be based on linux.
This has to sting:
Carleton S. Fiorina, the chief executive, said that by using Linux, rather than Windows, Hewlett can reduce the cost of the device, which has not been set, she said.
"The real motive is not the cost," she added, but "the ease of use and simplicity."
