Lots of buzz about Orb

Orb is a free alternative to the SlingBox, but is a software solution rather than a combined hardware and software solution like SlingBox.  I’ve played around a lot with the Sling device and have to say that I have been very impressed even though it costs around $250.  Also, the Sling device is platform-independent whereas Orb is only available right now for Windows XP and all of my home equipment is Macintosh.

Anyway, check it out if your home system is Windows XP and you’re looking for a free remote media streaming solution.
