We put Linux at the heart of your home entertainment with a streaming box that can transcode your films, shuffle your music collection and store your photos. Run it from your Ubuntu box, spin up a Docker instance, run it from OpenMediaVault and add an AirSonic music service.

Plus we relive our ZX Spectrum days, broadcast our desktops with OBS, edit RAW photos with ease, plot Covid infections with viral visuals and test out power distros!
