These days, most people have at least one computer and a large collection of media files.

Really enjoyed your comments--I am a satisfied customer.  Years ago I wrote you when my friend Jack Nielson died to let you know that you were going to probably get a lot of orders for his CD.

You wrote me a nice email back!!!!

This is a good idea as I have a ton of media files (particularly videos) on my PC. I could focus my files on one and my documents for the paper writing service company when I write my essay for them without sacrificing performance. Thanks for the tip.

Sounds cool and all but having a full linux distro installed seems like overkill. FreeNAS is a really good option for sharing media with a whole bunch of devices. The web interface is pretty slick and straight forward as well. I just took an old Dell machine with a few cheap SATA 1TB drives and now I stream high quality movies to my xbox and listen to my music at work via DAAP. Good stuff. :)

Your very good stuff referring to this post sould be a ground for thesis writing service and for some buy dissertation service and be used at thesis example.

Even buy thesis services couldn’t make such kind of the finest dissertation thesis about this topic and possibly, you work especially for dissertation writing services. In that case we could buy a thesis from your organization straight off.

Fuppes is a free open source media server for linux.  It is all commad line and works good on my headless Ubuntu server.  It is kind of a pain to set up, but works with my xbox 360.  Fuppes will even transcode video and music.

Sorry, but a Linux-based media streamer that requires a GUI just isn't that interesting. It would be nice to see open-source streaming software manageble through a simple Bash shell.

There's Twonky Media, but they want money for it.

I just tried this is in connection with one of those freebie watch tv online services and it works quite well. I was just going to throw away and let my old P1 with like 500mhz just rust but this is so much better.

I want to get a few monitors and turn them into a multiscreen - can probably pick some vga monitors for cheap ..will probably look on new egg or something for them.

Pentiums were never released in 500 MHz flavors.

Pentium II's were near the end, but Pentium III's got there first.

Interesting article, but I strongly believe that a Linux server with samba and XBMC as a frontend (cross-platform as well) on PC client is a better option.<a href="http://www.onlinewebsitesdesign.com">website design</a> | <a href="http://www.designerevaluation.com/web-design/">web design</a> | <a href="http://www.facebook.com/designerevaluation/">free website design</a> | <a href="http://www.realsofttech.com/">flyer design</a>

I believe Orb has been either licensed out or taken over by Winamp; the Winamp equivalent is Winamp Remote and it works REALLY well. Highly recommend it to anyone needing to stream music, movies, etc. You access your media through a web browser, which means that I can stream music to my 3G smartphone. Very slick.

A great option for Windows users is Orb http://www.orb.com/ 

 This is web based and works very well you can stream music and video. If you have a capture card on the streaming PC you can stream your TV to any other web connected computer.

 Best of all this is all free and brain dead simple to setup and run.

TVersity (http://tversity.com/) will be your better choice on Windows platform, it supports more media format, both input and output.
