The Myth of the Living Room PC

This Slate article looks at why the media PC took hold in living rooms and why convergence has its limits. I certainly buy the idea that people are quite happy with separate devices for their "lean-back" and "learn-forward" activities. What I'm not so sure of is how much sense it makes to distinguish between the back-end systems that power these.
