    Linux on TVs is nothing new and shouldn't come as a surprise. If you've got a DVR device, a Texas Instrument chip, an 'enhanced' media device (WD, seagate, boxee etc..) you've already got a Linux TV. What Ubuntu is doing here is associating their brand of Linux (and make no mistake about it, Canonical is doing its best to push Ubuntu as a brand) for consumer electronics vendors.

    I'm getting a bit worried about the direction Ubuntu seems to be heading in. This TV thing really has me worried about the future, because Canonical is trying to push Ubuntu as a brand.
