Despite my comment yesterday about full-screen applications in Lion, Front Row will apparently not be featuring in the next-gen operating system at all.
Front Row has been part of Macs since 2005, but since then with the launch of Apple TV, Airplay and more on-demand services, interest in the full screen viewing application has dwindled. Macs have not shipped with Apple IR Remotes for quite some time.
Not to mention, as an official Apple application, it does not support all file types and codecs, whereas simple third-party applications like VLC player are continuously growing in popularity.
I for one do not use the program, it is a nice addition, but I shall not miss it.
If you DO use it, I'd like to know your thoughts on this.
Thanks to Apple Insider for the info.
