I sort of expected to see the Tux Racer game, to be displayed on the monitor/hdTV. :-)

I had to log in, to view the attachment.

". Btw, was it used for home entertainment as in movies, tv or music?"

It has multiple uses.

- can stream movies from anywhere on my home network or the 128 gig storage on the Bell modem
-can boot quickly into virtual Mint (and maybe play TuxRacer  :) )
-can wander the Internet with a wired-in connection
-can do email
- has a remote keyboard and mouse, so I can sit on our reclining couch and use it as an ordinary computer

and with the press of a button, we can go back to regular TV watching

'Can' is wrong of course. 'Used to be able to' is now more appropriate. (Sob, sob.)
