Not a software development post this but more an admiration of my fellow developers, in particular the guys who work on developing XBMC, the free, open source media center software for Windows, Linux, OSX, iOS etc.
It is often difficult to believe that such a fantastic, feature packed, slick and polished product is free! Anyone wanting to know more info should click here: http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=XBMC_Online_Manual or http://xbmc.org/
Well worth a donation to support those guys I think! http://xbmc.org/contribute/donate/
