It is a media player. Or better: it is an operating system that fits in a 6 MB ISO and based on the 2.6 Linux kernel (at least for version 0.98 I tested) and the great mplayer media player most of you know. You simply burn the ISO and you get a bootable CD that will recognize most of your hardware (in my case it recognized all of that): video card and its tv-out, sound card and cd/dvd-rom and hard disks. It does not supply a console, but just a menu (look at the screenshots we made and those provided on the project's homepage) with a good range of choices.
