The Mac Media Center Project, an open source project to develop a complete media center interface for the Mac mini, launched this past week. There’s already links up for how to connect all your A/V hardware (also see Engadget’s how-to for more on that), but the crux of the project is developing integrated software to support the Mac mini as a media center. I can’t wait to see what these guys come up with for a 10-foot-interface! If you want to get involved, there’s ample opportunity to contribute code, graphics, or just feature requests, though most of the coordinator positions have already been filled.
Despite rumors that Apple may be up to something similar themselves, it’s great to see users making the products our own. (Okay, their own. I’m in no shape to develop fun things like that.)
