Core Concepts: Examining Load Average

Video Reel: Plex Running On Ouya

Somehow, I missed that on June 26th, the Plex Android App made it to Ouya.  Well there goes my Roku usage (maybe).   And just incase you are wondering why this is on The Linux Cauldron, Android runs the Linux kernel, which is the heart of the Ouya.  Can’t wait to test this out tonight!
