I didn't consider LinuxMCE when I was choosing. It looks very good although, I've visited the LinuxMCE site. KUbuntu based with mythtv and pretty good looking. Probably a good choice. But I don't need the extra functionality of it, while I do need the things of the original ubuntu desktop. So probably for me it was better to choose ubuntu and install the mythbuntu extra packages. Installation was not too bad, for the first timer like me it meant some headache although to learn how mythtv is built up.
