[PLUG] Boxee on Ubuntu?

Anyone using on Ubuntu (esp. 10.04)? AFAICT it doesn't support Netflix streaming (the usual DRM issue), and I'm already using MythTV for recording off Comcast super-lame limited basic analog cable.

So does a Boxee install even do anything for me? It sounds like it might make finding and watching stuff from online easier?

After a bit of tweaking (~/.boxee/UserData/guisettings.xml <vsync>0</vsync>) I got it running, but it wants to create a user account. Am I going to regret doing that if I do? Or should I use a Mailinator address for testing?

implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
