I would say hands-down that the cross-platform projects would be
dominant on Linux, but that might not come true if Windows users are
already fairly well-served by some free-beer equivalent.  I notice that
Windows Media Center retails for over $100 at newegg.

And who says it's any better?

Is Encarta better than Wikipedia?

Ex-MS security guru to dump Media Center for Linux?

Okay, so this expert has switched from the pricey WMC to LinuxMCE, preferring the Linux-only app to the cross-platform options.

But the most important choices here are those of developers who would work on a media-center apps and those who would contribute in other ways (especially monetarily). Most contributors want their stuff to be used, and they reach fifty times as many users with a cross-platform app as they do with a Linux-only app.
