Farewell Front Row ➝

Chris Breen reminds us that OS X Lion does not include Front Row, and offers a possible solution. I spent the entire beta period wondering why no one mentioned Front Row in Lion. And, it wasn’t until a few days ago that I learned that Apple has removed Front Row from OS X.

What’s disappointing about this is that I am replacing my main computer — a 2008 iMac — with a MacBook Air and was planning on moving the iMac to the bedroom and using it as a media playback device. But, no Front Row means I have to either try Chris Breen’s solution or test out PlexBoxee, or XBMC.

I just really hope that I won’t have to downgrade to Snow Leopard just for its 10-foot interface.
