    Ubuntu 10.10 has now been released, although I think waiting for Linux Mint would be better.

    I ended up wussing out and sticking with Ubuntu (already had 10.10 RC installed), just because I've used it quite a lot in the past and understand it. When I'm a bit more confident with bash and scripts, I'll try something a bit less shiny, for now though I just want my machine to work!

    As for the XBMC problem, I think I'm just going to use cloned monitor for now until I can figure something better out, which is a shame because that limits my 1080p TV to 720p (maximum resolution of my monitor).

    I tried using Compiz to automatically move and size the XBMC window, but I can't find a way of undecorating the window in Compiz. Might be the first functional script I have a crack at!

    I know this is probably of no interest to anybody, but thought I'd share anyway.

    I've finally decided after days of playing that it's too much of a cop out to use Ubuntu. I do like how simple it is to set up and use, but it's not very stable at all, I feel like I'm constantly patching things to get them to work. I've found some good Linux tutorials I'm going to work through, and I'm going to install the latest stable release of Debian to work through them with (which I believe is Lenny?).

    I do still have a Ubuntu box running, but that's just because I've been tinkering with setting up a dedicated boxee machine. Although now that I think about it, boxee comes as Debian packages, so although it's advertised as for Ubuntu, I guess it'd work on a Debian box if you sorted out the dependencies... am I right?
