I am trying to understand this OpenELEC software that is supposedly a straight boot to XBMC. It seems to install only the drivers you need, and no extra software, saving you tens of GB's of installation for your OS.
Do any of you use it for an HTPC? I'm not sure it will have the flexibility I would want as my main theatre HTPC, but I was thinking it would be something quick and simple to put on laptops or cheap desktops for other rooms of the house.
Because it will have XBMC, will it be able to stream media files off a server elsewhere on the network?
Any other issues I could run into while trying this?
