I personally would rather see a Linux implementation than Windows for the clients. The reason is simply because linux will allow for an OS to be loaded via PXE or even CD to run the client workstation instead of having to have a full Windows implementation.
If done correctly, a free PXE server could even be included in the SAGETV software, and a pre-configured monolythic kernel that's already pre-configured to work with everything known to man setup out of the box.
Even better than that would be the fact that there would be almost no moving parts required in the client. And, if done correctly, a very very old machine could be used with say a PVR-350 to handle the decoding and OSD and make a very quiet and very cheap client.
I mean realistically, I've got hardware just sitting in the closet that would work perfectly for this that could easily be used for this purpose if there was only a client for linux.
