    I've been running XBMC for years. Have it setup to stream from my G4 server machine. Works great.

    no, they haven't hacked the 360 yet. it will work on a modded xbox.

    pretty much you could compare it to a replacement of front row. i personally think front row is really nice, especially front row in leopard. however it does have some shortcomings, like codec stuff (unless they fixed that)

    I was looking at the alpha the other day and I think they are working on it, but not right now.

    Keep in mind this software is still very alpha, but it has HUGE potential. I am going to take my modded Xbox and put it on a projector in a shed I have in the backyard (so we can play music vids when hosting parties, playing beer pong, etc....yay college) and then put a Mac Mini on my HDTV.

    yeah i have a regular xbox running it, but never really use it. I do use the DVI out on my MBP to run front row on when having parties though. that way I can keep the apple remote in my pocket to control the music. With my MBP hidden away so ppl don't fuck with it.

    I REALLLY wish that frontrow would display song lyrics from iTunes. Can xbmc do this? I Guess i will go ahead and install it and see how it goes.

    Fumbled around with it a bit just now, ill stick to front row for now until i can figure out the karaoke part, and to have it set to fullscreen + apple remote.
