What's the current status of boards like Asus E35M1-M Zacate Motherboard working with XBMC under Linux? Is it a no-go as of now (stable), but "maybe in the future" (-git)?
I'm putting together a new NAS, and if I go the Zacate route I want it to replace my Atom/Ion for HTPC purposes as well.

Has this been resolved? Im stuck in the exact same spot.

How about Llano? i haven't seen any posts about the new APU, given its pretty new has anyone had a chance to do a build with one yet?

Yes, I'm also interested if the new A6 and A8 APU work fine with XBMC. Basically all adaptions made for Zacate / E-350 APUs should also work on the new Llano hardware, or am I wrong?

Thanks all for this great Tread! The start was great and very interesting but ATM I'm not seeing any positive reaction's about running XBMC (Linux) on a ATI system. (Is it still to early for this?)
I'm thinking of buying a AD02 for my DTS-MA needs but wan't EDEN to run on Linux and not Win..
Ps. found the next Tread -> HOW-TO use VAAPI HW Acceleration on AMD Zacate (Fusion) platform
More reading in progress

XBMC (Linux) + ATI on linux is getting better,,,,,
However, its not perfect, and might give u terrible headaches....

I just wanted to chime in with my experience so far. After reading the initial anandtech review of fusion i decided to jump right in and purchased 3 AD02's figuring i would run windows for 1080p flash support, which still hasn't materialized btw and i expect it never will. I've had nothing but problems and at this point i'm on the fence of possibly just eating the cost and chucking them in the dumpster they are so bad. All 3 systems suffer from frequent lockups (i've tried windows 7 latest drivers which should be stable, openelec nightly builds which i know to be unstable, i'm not even going to bother wasting time compiling a nightly and running ubuntu) I'm running the latest bios from zotac and as i said i believe the issues to be hardware/bios level at this point. I once had the sound stop functioning out of the blue and after numerous restarts the only thing to resolve it was to pull the power from the system, which magically cleared things up.
Another thing to keep in mind, the stable version of xbmc for windows suffers from a stuttering playback issue after a few days/maybe a week of uptime on these systems forcing a reboot which is extremely annoying for something i just want to use as an appliance. I've been running xbmc on every tv in the house since the early days of the original xbox project and these are by far the worst problem's i've dealt with. I have several ion systems that work flawlessly as xbmc linux appliances running ubuntu minimal installs and would highly recommend going that route if you have the choice.

Thanks for your information Touser and to bad to hear that at the same time.. This is the same story that other people are talking about on other forum's...
So our only faith is the next gen ION 2 system....

Wow, I haven't run into that one yet. I've had this E350 machine running under Windows 7 for less than a week though. It comes out of hibernation and plays just fine so far. The only problem I had was the first board I received was semi-DOA, but the Newegg fixed that for me right quick.
