Between June and September a good part of my time went into compiling a comparative study on FLOSS Media Center applications. Through an extensive research and contact with the communities of each project, I identified the 10 projects promising great innovation in this segment, which is still embryonic in Brazil and in part of Europe but already well developed in the United States.
Free Media Centers Comparison Study
The projects compared were: XBMC, MythTV, Boxee, Elisa, Neuros OSD, Freevo, My Media System, Entertainer, CenterStage + Plex and MediaPortal.
