Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

Will the following be possible using Openelec on RPi:

1 - Network boot from an image on the network

2 - Have multiple clients read/write back to a single /storage partition on the network?

Thanks

Me too!

I guess that as others have got 25/05 that means that it is indeed 7th May and not 5th July.

Excellent.
