I doubt it would be too hard. not as simple as ubuntu or mint, but certainly doable with the information we have: A x86 machine with standard pc parts. We just need gcc.

No, but it's not practical 90% of the time because of how people typically have their "entertainment centers" setup. You wouldn't want to lug a bulky gaming PC into your living room every time you felt like kicking back and gaming would you? It's commonsense.

I've used my 61" TV as a monitor ever since I got it in 2006. I've also used a wireless mouse and keyboard but I'm thinking of getting a mechanical wired keyboard and just use an extension.

He said it was impractical for most people, which is true, not that it was impossible. Obviously there are exceptions, some people have their PCs in their living rooms, some are willing to carry their computer around. I don't even know how you can come to the stupid conclusions you came to based on his post.

My PC is hooked to my TV. However, when I'm gaming on the PC, my wife can't use it to watch news and stuff. Streaming games to Steambox, and then to my TV, would (or should) allow my wife to use the main computer while I play games on the TV. Potential win/win.

PC + Xbox 360 + PS3 + 55in plasma = gaming like a boss



P.S. I have a Wii-Wii too but that junk is a paperweight these days.


What's the point of a fireplace if you've got it blocked with a desk?

I have another fireplace upstairs but I honestly never use that one either. The room in the pic is my man / work from home cave and it also doubles as a guest bedroom. You couldn't see it in that pic but in the far corner is my mini studio.

Now, if I only had room down there for my gun rack.
