| CELCO, digital film recording systemscompany, announced that its new FURY

| Operating Software. Film recorders shipping in 3rd quarter and beyond will
| ship with Linux software and PC hardware as part of the complete film
| recorder package. The combined speed and power of the two technologies
| will allow premiere post-production facilities worldwide to meet the
| demanding timeframes of their digital workflow.
It's only one among similar Linux-based boxes/setups such as TiVO to MythTV.
Where are the rivals anyway? And why does everyone go for Linux, including
the PlayStation 3? Microsoft are nowhere to be seen when it comes to home
entertainment . Apple/Sony snatched much of the digital market.
