One more interesting article that I found today was Ubuntu TV Will Be In Your Living Room This Year from http://gizmodo.com/5874227/ubuntu-tv-could-be-in-your-living-room-this-year.
Apparently next year we will be able to buy a TV that has the Ubuntu Linux OS on it (a version optimized for TV) with an interface based on Unity.
Nice one for Canonical.
P.S. : Here is a demonstration of the new interface.
