I use XBMC running on Ubuntu 12.10 on an MSI Wind DC100 box with a wireless
keyboard. It's simply perfect. On the intel version of the box I am having
some issues with the analog sound output from the OS, but it works inside
XBMC, The TV only has one HDMI (used for cable), so sadly it's back to the
90s with VGA and old sound cables. It works flawlessly on HDMI though.
