MeediOS is in pre-release Alpha stage but many people are now running it as their full time HTPC front-end.

Meedio is a very powerful and configurable Home Theatre front-end for your PC. It was first known as MyHTPC, then Meedio, and finally Yahoo! Go4TV as freeware. Official releases have since ceased and the official forums abandoned. The vibrant developer community have moved here and the activity has only increased. We now have over 450 freeware plugins for Meedio, as well as numberous other projects.
