I was trying to create a video/picture streaming server, and came across this product. For a moment I was worried if the computer would have enough horse power to do on-the-fly video transcode so the video may be consumed for different devices such as iPhone, WD TV, or big screen TV. In the end, I found it not only handled the streaming and transcode without a sweat, I was able to watch three different streams simultaneously. I am no Linux guru, but I was able to put together a media server with this amazing product.
