You won't find this hack available for download just yet, but Erica Sadun over at TUAW has posted a video showing AirPlay streaming from an iPad to an XBMC media server running on Ubuntu.

Erica, who helped initiate all this AirPlay trickery with her early code spelunking efforts, says that Windows hacks are also in development.
