Released this morning was the first cross-platform release of XBMC (formerly known as the 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 XBMC, and iTunes/iPhoto integration. The final release of this open-source media center application is expected next month. The release announcement and download links can be found on the XBMC web-site. XBMC is the software that powers Boxee.tv.
