All in one Orange Box
With Steam diving into Ubuntu Linux, I've started thinking about a next gen. console. With that in mind, I started thinking about the big picture and how consoles can't be upgraded and the user rights a horrible. So I decided to build my "all in one orange box." This box will be for the future of my living room. It will have STEAM's "BIG Picture" in mind as well as Ubuntu TV, "TV for humans." These two overlays will bring new life into my media set up. No need to have a media player a PS3 and what ever else one could want. Bamm here is the wish list.

There you have it. What I need just for my TV. It'll do everything I need and more. From homework to playing a game to stream a movie or playing a blu-ray. All this at a cost that my current system would be "jelly" over. ps my current pc is a mad machine and will throw down against the best.
ON ANOTHER NOTE AMD NEEDS TO GET ME SOME B.A DRIVERS FOR UBUNTU 12.10 SO MY UNITY DOESN'T CRASH AND I CAN USE MY CURRENT SYSTEM, WHICH IS WAY TO BIG TO BE NEXT TO MY TV. LET"S GO AMD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
