The EventGhost developer quits his work and is looking for new core developers. The site and the forum got adopted by someone and moved to the new domain . The old site get closed on 01.03.2011, the old SVN on 01.04.2011, the old website on 01.05.2011.

So, this project is not dead, the community tries to keep EventGhost alive. Let's hope for new core developers soon. :)

I use it with my X10 remote control to control foobar, different video players (also for DVB-T), some widgets and system settings and other stuff. There's a big set of macros and plugins to realize everything you want. It's fast, stable, extensive, user-friendly, intuitive... and Open Source. A really nice piece of software.

This is a great free alternative to girder while not quite as powerful as girder..yet, its open architecture allows it to be extended to do pretty much whatever you want.
