Kodi, the re-branding that XBMC deserves!

I've used XBMC on several systems in the past 10 years:

As well as several custom built home theater systems.

Finally after 10 years XBMC is shedding it's ties to the original Xbox and renaming itself Kodi - and I embrace this change fully.

While XBMC brings back old memories of hacking away at an Xbox to get more out of it, it no longer needs the association for exposure. Kodi is a strong application in its own right, with a multitude of 3rd party support - and several 3rd parties basing their own branch of software on the core, such as the Boxee Box by D-Link and the highly successful Plex appliaction which even runs on the Amazon Fire TV.

Read more about this on the official site, which I am sure will be renamed also...
