Canola Media Center: http://www.techdrivein.com/2010/07/canola-media-center-works-surprisingly.html
Or check the list of media centers: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/using-your-linux-computer-as-a-media-center-part-1/
Though it's 2 years old.
Try XMBC. It's SDL based and can run on every OSs
I can recommend this theme for it: http://xbmc.org/skins/aeon/
Note that mouse is disable in it, so it goes through remote control or keyboard.
They have dis-continued the 64-bit version. Time for me to switch to gnash or may be html5 as I only uses it for youtube.
The Xandros & Linspire is a good exampel of this. Xandros bought and stripped Linspire back in 2008.
If Mandriva is going to keep on under new owner A LOT of things needs changes. Mandriva as it is now have several failures from poor management to total lack of PR department and communication.
Why so negative?
A new ownership means new breath of live, new opportunities, maybe finally better marketing, so it can only be positive!
If they can find a buyer and if the buyer don't kill Mandriva.
Now what? :unsure:
The crises have been for many years (more or less), so this seems avoidable in the end.
There's a special Bundle running at Wolfire dot com. Get 5 games and you choose how much you'll pay. You can also donate the money to charity or developers or split them between. The offer is only for 7 days.
All the games runs natively in Linux.
World of Goo - Aquaria - Gish - Lugaro - Penumbra: Overture
Yep, due to group pressure by the people I play linux games with :P
Switched a week ago and began to build game pkg for Arch. 13 pkgs so far :)
Have a look, there might be something interesting: aur.archlinux.org.

Tried Songbird once, then removed it again. I prefer Amarok as a Music library/player/etc. When I need/use a simple player for music, VLC is doing a fine job.
I have surely included Songbird to my list of the most badly designed bloated/disfunctional software ever, so I wouldn't care less about their drop of support for *nix.
Fork it? Whatfor? Bugs shouldn't be forked...
Whoa...It must be one of the few times I actually agrees with scarecrow :D
The Game Packs have been updated.
101 new game icons + 7 new bonus icons
Check the first post for full description.
Time to releasing my game icon packs. Each pack contains 202 game icons + 11 bonus icons.
The Bespin Game Packs fits well for thomas12777 (at kde-look.org) Bespin themes: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Bespin?content=63928
The Kontrast Game Pack is made for Docks like; Daisy Plasmoid, kiba dock, etc.
This is the first versions of the packs, but I'll release new versions with more icons in them.

Rather an odd piece of advice to give to a Mandriva user! :P
Well, he quoted me, when I wrote the reply :)
Add ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports to the repositories.
Very nice, upgraded yesterday ^_^
Time to change sig banner then :P
Just want to mention a great game I played lately: http://machinarium.net/demo/
If you like puzzle adventure games (point'n'click), this game is worth the money.
It cost $20 and you'll get full game + full mp3 DRM free music (19 tracks) of the game.
Looks more like Gnome than KDE, what the theme you are using?
It's Bespin SVN (icons, decoration, KDM, Splash) with milk mod. I'm only missing setting Bootsplash up.
I made a guide for installation and how to get a Desktop to look exactly like mine: http://ubuntuevolution.wordpress.com/2010/01/07/nice-bespin-kde-4-desktop-part-1/
It have been approved by the Bespins Devs and use it for tutorial reference (w00t :))
Video I made of Bespin and KDE 4.4: http://ubuntuevolution.wordpress.com/2010/01/05/kde-4-4-with-bespin-theme-video/
I'll suggest Air for transparent panels.
A bit late, but it works flawlessly for me with Crossover Games.
