    do you think we will see the software airtunes server no that it is in the apple tv? Probably pretty easy to rip it off and run it on any mac.

    I think that happened when it was first released last March.

    yeah, they hacked the backrow to run on a regular mac. I am sure that will happen again. I am wondering if they will hack just the airtunes server. It may be a part of the new backrow though.

    That would be awesome! I would love to be able to stream music through any other Mac. I have 3 Airport Expresses in the house. When we have parties we play music through all of them. The AppleTv new features I am able to get rid of two of the Airport Expresses. If this software becomes a reality I could alleviate the third one as we have an iMac in that same room where the last one is. Quick find someone smart to make this!
