TV on Your PC: Hulu, Joost and Miro Reviewed

| No matter what service you pick, you won't find everything you want, thanks
| in part to corporate hang-ups and in part to the primitiveness of these early
| stages. They're maddeningly incomplete, like a crappy library in a rural
| town. Joost is probably your best bet in terms of quantity and quality, with
| Miro working better if you want a ton of new programming but don't care about
| corporate quality. And if you want Battlestar, well, the choice will be made
| for you.

Miro (Democracy Player) for Linux Reviewed

,----[ Quote ]
| At the end of the day, Miro has been one of my favorite methods of
| downloading, maintaining and enjoying user created content. It's been a
| source of joy and discovery for me personally, and I only wish to see them
| gain a better focus on their future direction. Remember, non-profits can
| indeed, generate a profit. It's just a matter of reinvesting those funds into
| the project to better see through the mission of the group as a whole. * *
