Can be used as a desktop for an HTPC. This will play almost any type of file format allow you to manage your library, scrap sites of your choice for media info. The latest release is just out v12. This is a very advanced app that has alot of features. Take your time to learn it and it will be all you need.

I use XMBC on my HTPC and have it work from my remote. How nice is that.

I still use iTunes as well but only for music now. I need it to load up my ipod classic with play lists album covers and the music. Otherwise the ipod is nothing more than a portable drive of music.
I took a look online and it seems to do a lot of things. Also looked at some youtube videos and it seems to be able to go out and grab movies, TV shows and the like. Is that what you are doing? Are you using it instead of cable or direcTV?
Seems mighty interesting. Now you guys are making me want to build a HTPC. I won't have any money left after hanging around here.
