Ok So I just bought a new Atom Box to use as my Media Center instead of my current WDTV Live Hub. My question is I've heard of some problems with HDMI and Linux and XBMC. I haven't used Linux in 5-8 years so it will be refreshing to be using it again. Here is the computer spec I was wondering if anyone has a Atom Box and could give some tips on Linux and HDMI or am I better running this on Win 7 which I would rather not do.
It will have 4gigs RAM and a 60gig SSD Drive that came with it for free a OCZ one if I remember right.! Thanks for the help!

You'll want an Nvidia GPU for the best performance on Linux. Not sure if that unit can support it or not.
