After a year slaving at their keyboards the development team behind XBMC have emerged from their dungeon. The clever XBMC monkeys have at last released XBMC 11, code name Eden. This simple piece of open source software is able to convert any humble PC into a TV blasting multimedia device.
This widely used software has over the years grown a massive community and spread itself across the major computing platform, Windows, Linux, OSX, and iOS. Those willing to jailbreak their AppleTV can even run XMBC on the little black box.
The key to XMBC is the interface, specially designed to be seen on a TV from 10 feet away everything about XMBC is the opposite to how a PC normally works. Favouring remote controls over keyboards and losing the desktop, replaced with animated menu’s this is a proper multimedia centre interface.
