I agree with this, I am hoping to get way for Koenkk to have the source of the project open for others to look at.Diaoul wrote: Rather than opening the source code so the community can gather, XBian makes it impossible to contribute and closed source.
With Raspbmc its as the following;brasello wrote:P.S. how can i make this usb wifi adapter ( http://elinux.org/RPi_Peripherals ) to work on both (or one of them...)???
Obviously related to this blog post from Sam: http://www.raspbmc.com/2012/09/xbian-code-theft/XBian is dead! Site is going down, all switch over to @OpenELEC for the best XBMC distro for raspberry pi, thanks to everyone who helped me!

I would appreciate though if some things could be clarified a bit for me.
The raspbmc installer appears to be based partly on the 'usbit.dll' referred to in the article published on the front page of the raspbmc site, which as far as I can gather is written by Alex Page @ http://www.alexpage.de on his site Alex states the USB Image Tool is 'copyright' material and should carry his copyright for any significant parts of the program used.
Or have I got the wrong 'usbit.dll'
All the releases build xbmc from the same source so they're all pretty much the same. It boils down to what you want, OpenElect is probably the most locked down of the three, Raspbmc is a dedicated Media Center build that is very customizable, Xbian is an OS that includes xbmc and still allows you to do PC things on it. Don't look at System Info in xbmc to read cpu usage on any of the releases as the act of updating the numbers on the screen will drive cpu up, check from an ssh session using top for accurate readings. Try to ignore the Fanboys comments, try them all and make your own choice.omiez wrote:Hello friends
I installed Raspbmc but the Load on the Cpu is high.
Looking on the faq of Raspbmc i saw that this is normal at first start because the system is updating.
How long does it take to the system to update i used the Pi for about 30 minutes with no sign of unload?
Which of releases beetween Raspbmc,Xbian and Openelec have minimum impact on CPU?
Uh, when you install the libdvdcss libs, it works pretty much... Only some issues with the menu's, but most things (like subtitles and audio choice) are directly accessible via the gui anyway...PeterO wrote:I've tried all three, and none of them seem to be able to to the most basic of things ( like play a DVD!) .
Unless you have some huge stash of programmes you've already downloaded from the 'net they all seem pretty much pointless.....
