I recently found myself looking for a new media center software and came across Boxee.

It has a slick interface and allows you to access all of your computers from one place, throws in content from the Web and is built on open source, not to mention it runs on Windows, Apple and Linux.

The twist for this media center is that you can now share what you watch and find with your friends, which is definitely a neat little touch.

It also allowed me to play my DVR-MS files no issue through my mac, which is another piece of software I have needed. Still testing the Boxee services, but so far so good.
