Note that the AIOS is about a year older than the XIOS. Yhe AIOS got 6 official firmware updates and 21 semiofficial firmware updates between September 2011 and September 2012.
Do they plan for both products to co-exist?
yup, they are two different products answering to different questions.
I really like the design of the AIOS and am considering buying one. I'm primarily looking for a media player that would be able to stream all my videos/movies and photos on my NAS,
The AIOS should fit the bill nicely
plus be able to access a large variety of Internet media sources. I don't need it to play actual disks as I have a very good BlueRay, DVD, CD player.
well, beside the Asian streams and the non-guaranteed EU streams from the semiofficial firmware, AIOS is limited in that department (YT will work fine, as well as most podcasting portals).
I am also not trying to do this on the cheap. The approx. $90 AIOS price is nice, but if there are units out there that are better and do what this does and is even a couple hundred, that would be ok too.
If you are willing to go $200 I would just build a net-top, it will be better than any thing in the market.
I'm just wondering what is Pivos' long term plans for the AIOS.
There is not much to add to the current state of the AIOS (except for some visual elements and convenience non-core related features), there was a full disclosure of what to expect and current state of AIOS firmware development on the AIOS forums, please check here: http://www.pivosforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1783#p14595
