“The HTPC is Dead!”–NOT!
I admit it. I am an avid and loyal Home Theater PC fan! So before you get the title’s meaning confused, I am quoting someone else and adding my own NOT!
I did this for more reasons than simply making the point that I didn’t like the title an author used for his article, but rather for something much more grand…at least in my eyes. You see, I have a feeling that we are on the brink of sweeping changes in how we interact with not just our Home Theaters, but with our entire homes!
My reason for so valiantly defending the HTPC’s fate comes down to a few short points…
I feel that by the end of the article, you’ll see the great potential and longevity the HTPC has…no matter what it “looks” like down the road. A HTPC media center, whether it be Windows 7 Media Center, XBMC Media Center living on Ubuntu, SageTV Media Center, or any of the other viable solutions out there, has much more uses than just streaming HD content!
Please enjoy the rest of my latest Home Toys submission and let me know what you think! It’s time to embrace technology and innovation, not dismiss it! Home System Integration, or the “connected home” is here to stay!
If you like my article, please consider sharing it. I certainly appreciate it! And leave a comment and let me know: Is the HTPC just this old-school geeks dream? Or does it indeed have a future like I believe?
