Released this morning was the first cross-platform release of XBMC (X-Box Media Center) for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X platforms. This release, codenamed "Atlantis", sporting this multi-platform compatibility also arrives with a new default skin, an XBMC Live distribution as an OS to purely run X-Box Media Center, and iTunes/iPhoto integration...
XBMC is only called "XBMC" now, it is not "XBox Media Center" any longer
Thanks for posting the news about XBMC 8.10 Beta 1, but know that XBMC is no longer called "XBox Media Center", we, Team-XBMC and the XBMC project, have officially got rid of that old name since XBMC went cross-platform. XBMC is now simply "XBMC" or "XBMC Media Center" as a semi-recursive acronym for XBMC.
Definitely a great alternative to Windows MCE.
Took me a few hours to compile it, but this program really convinces me, the only feature I'd be missing would be a "minimize from fullscreen" feature, so that I can do other stuff while playing music.
Already possible, press the / button on your keyboard, (there is no option for it available in the GUI only because XBMC designed to run a media center and not a desktop application)
Thanks for that info, however, I'm on a german keyboard layout and need to press SHIFT+7 for entering /, and thus that shortcut doesn't work actually :-/
Is it possible to change that shortcut in some config file / the source itself?
