So I upgraded the good ole' media center machine at home to XBMC 11.0 Beta . XBMC has been one of those software finds that has been just marvellous - to the point where I can’t imagine the telly at home without XBMC. I’ve pretty much stopped watching regular tv/cable and almost exclusively on XBMC. Also, its been a great way to keep the aging laptop (circa 2006 - core2Duo 1.6 Ghz, 2 Gb RAM and a piddling ATI Radeon X1600) in active duty. Here’s a hat-tip to all the XBMC guys and gals. And if you’re not running a media center at home, you should give it a spin - XBMC makes your idiot box smart!
