Review: The Linux Powered Neuros OSD

Filed under

The Neuros OSD is a fascinating piece of Linux powered multimedia hardware. The Neuros OSD is a small device, yet it packs a big punch. Think of it as an all in one media center that's no bigger than your average hard backed novel.

Some of its biggest selling features are:

* No DRM - There's no DRM anywhere in this unit. That's one reason I like it so much. They believe in digital freedom just as much as I do.

* Open Source - The core operating system, or IOS in this case, is built from Linux and is open and free to the world at large to edit, rewrite, upgrade, add features to and so much more. This even includes bug fixing.

* Freedom - You're not told what you can and can't do with it. You decide.

* Quick bug resolution and feature adding - Given that it's open source, upgrades, bug fixes and new features come quickly and problems are quickly addressed.

And that's just the beginning.
