Which is the best Internet media streaming application for a media-center PC? Boxee, Zinc, or the new Hulu Desktop? A post at DeviceGuru.com (http://www.deviceguru.com/boxee-vs-zinc-vs-hulu/) reviews these three media streaming platforms and draws some interesting conclusions. Key pros and cons are tabulated and numerous screenshots are included. Interestingly, despite lots of Boxee hype, Zinc already has a number of valuable features that Boxee is scrambling to add to its next version, due out in the fall. On the other hand, Boxee boasts far more third-party content-access applications support.

'scrabbling to add'?

zinc also doesn't run on linux... plus it's ugly.

Somebody really needs to introduce the zinc guys to some UI design theory, It's pretty shocking.

Also, why does the logo remind me a little of 1990s yahoo?
