    Plex (XBMC fork) has had full support for Logitech Harmony for ages now.

    XBMC is no longer (Officially) on the XBox, it has had a Linux branch for a long time now, and now also has OSX and Windows versions. It's also the codebase that Boxee and Plex were forked from. I'd suggest you take a look at it, as it's truly an awesome media center.

    Most of the higher quality HD skins for XBMC (Aeon, etc) are designed specifically to not use the mouse. Once you remove the mouse from the equation, a remote like they are offering becomes a complete solution for controlling your media center. With all its plugins, there is really never a reason to ALT+TAB out of XBMC unless you need to use a browser for something unrelated to media (there are even gmail plugins for XBMC).
