I know a few people out there who have modded their Xboxes not for the ability to pirate games, but for one specific application: Xbox Media Center. For those of you who don’t know, Xbox Media Center, or XBMC (as it’s known), is a very slick, network-file-sharing-enabled interface for playing movies, picture slideshows, listening to music using your Xbox. One thing that has been lacking in the XBMC scene, in my opinion, has been a centralized source for following XBMC’s development unless you wanted to spend hours browsing through the two main XBMC forums (the official forum, the xbox-scene.com forum).
Enter ‘Jon’ from Jon’s Thoughts on Everything who has started up the XBMC development tracking ‘What’s Up With Xbox Media Center’ blog. So far he’s posted fairly consistently, giving some insight into upcoming features as well as providing personal commentary on feature suggestions. Overall it’s a fairly good resource, and if you use XBMC you should check it out.
