Good question. Got my Revo AR3610 today, havent turned it on, but this was one of the questions I have. I am a strong Linux user (Redhat Certified Engineer actually). I thought about formatting and installing a Linux distro on it and then XBMC (never installed it, but I'm sure I can figure it out). BUT, I think it is kind of convenient to be able to use it as a Windows desktop on my plasma. It could be nice to go online on my TV. I could also install an X server in Linux and I hope this Revo could run that too? Maybe XBMC Live is the way ot go then I could dual boot. Really all I need is a browser, so I know X can do everything I need, just need to know for sure if the Acer Revo w/ 330 atom 2gb, etc. can handle that, then I will just blow it all away and never look back on using Windows.
