Attention talk.png Read this page and still need help? Check out the XBMC for Linux support forum.

XBMC for Linux is primarily developed for Ubuntu Linux. Third-party packages for most other Linux distributions are however available, and it is also possible to compile XBMC Media Center from scratch for nearly any Linux distribution. Linux supports full hardware decoding with most graphics cards. Linux is generall the best way to get a fast, free, and "applicance" feel for an XBMC HTPC.
