This is pretty nice! I never knew anything like this existed--or I've never even thought about it. Once I start getting my Entertainment center together, I'm gonna need you guys help.

PM me anytime

there is just two main issues with XBMC

1) no TV Tuner support, might be very long time. They want same feature set on all platforms: Windows, Linux, Mac, AppleTV, Xbox, Linux, might be hard to do

2) currently no Hardware Acceleration Support.

That's what happens when you limit yourself to PS2.

The Windows Media Center remote.

My HTPC uses XBMC with the Horizonz skin and the SUI skin. I've been working with the creator of Horizonz and giving a few suggestions here and there. But for some reason, the Horizonz skin has a few bugs that need to be worked out. SUI works pretty good though.

If you guys have any questions, LMK.

Not sure, have you tried asking at the XBMC forums? I just use the official Microsoft Media Center remote. There is an application you have to run in order for it to work with XBMC, but I can't think of it's name right off the top of my head.
