XBMC is excellent. I had a top notch myth system for a few years but I just couldn't stand how much ongoing maintenance it required. After trying XBMC I gave away my TV tuners and switched completely.

If XBMC could reliably act as a frontend for Hulu, it would offer the entire experience my family wants. As it is, it handles the movies+music+old tv and the browser is still used for current TV. Not very refined but, hey, it works.
