From a usarbility point of view, it is arguably software designed by programmers, for programmers - code-shy novice users beware.

But feel free to give it a go yourself - just make sure you post your progress in Project Worklogs :D

Who the hell is she, and where can I find her?

The fact is that an LCD monitor is still not a PLED display, this is the only PLED display that I have ever seen sold on the consumer level and the fact that it is even semi effordable is amazing. PLEDs are brand new technology and as a result you pay a premium to be the only one on the block sporting one in your computer. I mean yay for PSone mods but they aren't even remotely similar to the MX6, they don't come with any of the same features and although it would be a cool mod to have, they only have around a 60 degree viewing angle and are damn near impossible to read across the room.
A PLED on the other hand can easily be read from quite a distance because they are so bright. Thats what makes them so good for use in a home theater PC system. Do you want to be able to read what song is playing when you are sitting on the couch? What about if your not at the optimal viewing angle? Does that matter to you? PLEDs have a 160 degree veiwing angle, that's the same as a plasma screen tv.
So why don't we start comparing the PLED from Matrix against some of its compeditors? Thats right there are none.
