No, it is crap for you. Do not dare to speak for me.
And is is not "all about the User Interface". It IS all about the PQ, codec/container support and ease of use. XMBC is all about eye-candy and fluff.

Seems like it wont support HD Audio which is a little disappointing.

Anyone have any idea how this Asus box compares to the upcoming Netgear media streamer?
I thought the Netgear was the only one (under $300) capable of playing blu-ray iso files, but from what the Asus site indicates, this box does so as well?
