Posting this with my Pi! Not exactly fast, but totally functional.

You should try using the Pi in the role of HTPC. The XBian, RaspBMC, and OpenELEC installations are relatively painless, and the responsiveness
I prefer XBian, and when in XBian, I prefer the SLiK skin because it is very uncluttered and simple (so it's faster)
