I think you might enjoy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d85p7JZXNy8 if you haven't seen it already. 13 years old but barely dated. The song itself starts at 1:25.

So instead of my current Netflix service with no ads which works nicely with my Chromecast, I'd instead be paying for an Amazon service with unskippable ads, no Chromecast support, and which appears to be an extra over and above the current Prime video offering (which I dropped due to lack of Chromecast support, or indeed any Android support apart from Amazon's own devices). Wow, how could I refuse?
"Rubbish - you can select between TV and Xbox - or snap it to one side with voice control - and it can power on / off your TV and receiver too...and you are ready for the full channel guide in early 2014..."
Let's see - switch between inputs with a button on my remote, or via an unreliable voice command, which even it works, means anyone in the room can switch inputs and power things on and off (yeah, the kids will find that *hilarious*). I'll keep the remote, thanks.
And why the hell would I want to watch TV at the same time, and on the same screen, as playing a game? That's just fucking stupid.
Installed 9.10 on four very different machines (AMD/Nivida gaming rig, Atom-powered netbook, Atom-powered media PC, Intel-powered corporate PC). Problems encountered: zero.
(OK, one problem: on the netbook, Xorg got the physical screen size wrong, but that was the case in 9.04 too. Fixed by adding an xrandr command in the startup)
Also booted the live CD on a Lenovo laptop and it works fine (even running dual screen), but I haven't installed it on that yet.
