Ever since Windows Vista came out, Aero Glass has been one of my favorite features in the operating system. With the advent of Windows 7 which also included the Aero Glass, I has been looking out for multimedia player that fully utilize Aero Glass. (Personally I would like software developer fully utilize Aero Glass) Not to mention the nice looking eye candy, but it does make me feel that the software is an integrated part of the Windows, which is why I always prefer software that using Aero Glass.

Linux-based Multimedia System – GeeXboX

GeeXboX

I would like to talk about a Multimedia system using Linux:-

Well, may be you know Windows Vista, Windows XP, but you might not knowing Linux. Linux is an operating system that offers a lot of function and is Windows-look-a-like operating system. But that main advantage of it is it can run in many old system in a satisfying performance. Do you have an abandoned PC without monitor or harddisk but the rest of the hardware still functioning ? Then the Multimedia System that I am going to share is suitable for you indeed, in fact I am using one too.

“GeeXboX is a free embedded Linux distribution which aims at turning your computer into a so called HTPC (Home Theater PC) or Media Center. Being a standalone LiveCD-based distribution, it’s a ready to boot operating system than works on any Pentium-class x86 computer or PowerPC Macintosh, implying no software requirement. You can even use it on a diskless computer, the whole system being loaded in RAM.”

As the introduction that I copied from the main site, it can run in a diskless system where you can actually able to watch any video format, eg. rmvb, avi, wmv etc. It is definitely piece of good software for those having an extra PC that can be turned into Home Theater PC and the most important thing is it’s hassle free. With a simple and intuitive combination of keys on keyboard to control it, your old Pentium 3 PC can become a modern HTPC with this tiny-sized program. Wireless keyboard is recommended of course, but who cares if you didn’t need to waste a single cents to revive a old PC to HTPC. Sounds nice eh ?

The main site is here , where a version of 1.2 is going to out soon with HDTV compatible update. Drill in and you can find that this system will help you a lot in Multimedia Entertainment. Until next time !
