XBMC = The Best Media Center !

Acum ca am facut pe bunul samaritean si am “donat” propriul meu Xbox unui bun amic, pot sa spun sus si tare ca XBMC, “vechiul” Media Center de pe vechiul Xbox este clar, The Best Media Player/Media Center EVER. Am inteles foarte repede ca o placa video care costa de 5 ori cat vechiul Xbox, alaturi de un sistem cu Conroe la 3.6Ghz, 2GB RAM si Raptor nu poate face fata unui amarat de Xbox (cu Intel Pentium la 733Mhz si doar 64MB RAM). Pur si simplu, am innebunit setand la playere si plugin-uri, care pe XBMC erau floare la ureche. Sa nu mai vorbim de design, de ergonomie, de functionalitate, si nu in ultimul rand, de pixel shader filtering… In afara de filme full HD, la care mai batranul P3 la 733Mhz nu face fata, XBMC nu are egal.
