Xbox Media Center, the open source effort that extends the capabilities of the O.G. Xbox, has been released for Mac in beta. Lifehacker has the scoop. Personally, I have yet to explore the full capabilities of Front Row, but I still wouldn’t mind giving XBMC a spin for comparison sake. Download the latest beta here.

What’s so great about XBMC you ask? Well, imagine utilizing the interface of Apple TV without paying one dime. You can run this software on any Mac running Leopard OS X and stream all of you media to the idiot box of choice. Play most video formats, saved DVD, your music and slideshows, all on your TV. The only issue I’m going to have is that I move my Macbook around so much that it’s not exactly a set top device like an Apple Tv or a Mac Mini. Time for a new Mac maybe :).
