Default Raspberry Pi

Anyone using one as an HTPC? I'm considering getting one to load up XBMC but wanted some feedback.

The Raspberry Pi can be turned into a Home Theater PC (HTPC) for an awesome experience by installing Raspbmc on it. The Raspbmc is a Linux distribution for the Raspberry Pi that has XBMC - a popular open source media player application, baked in and turns your Raspberry Pi into a HTPC. Installing Raspbmc on the Raspberry Pi is really very easy. This is an extremely cheap and effective HTPC build. For those of us looking to the Raspberry Pi Model B as a HTPC, it should be just a matter of time before this cheap, accessible, and programmable computer gets a strong distro with XBMC 1080p playback.
