Default Media center library management?

Hello, I recently rearranged my room so my 32" TV is next to my PC. I got it connected so I now have dual displays. Anyway, I want to easily scroll through my movies and tv shows easily from my bed with a wireless keyboard and mouse. Is there any good programs for managing my media library like my cable box? I played with Windows Media Center a bit but haven't liked it. What other options are out there?

The only thing on top of my head is not Windows. It's called LinuxMCE, but other than that, nothing pops up in mind ATM.

Thanks, I forgot about that. I was leaning more towards a Windows solution but I might set that up. I'm going to be reformatting my OS drive very soon so I'll probably be dual booting again.

Just before you do, try this:
K!TV | Logiciel TV - TV Software

I just found it fresh.

If you end up going the dual boot/Linux route, you might want to consider Mythbuntu.
