Raspbian or raspbmc?

Sat Feb 02, 2013 11:25 am

If I want to have LXDE, XBMC and RetroPie running on my Raspberry Pi, is it easier/better to put raspbian on the SD and install XBMC or start with raspbmc and install LXDE? Is there much of a difference in performance between the two?

Also, what is the best way to install XBMC on raspbian? I assume you can just do "apt-get install lxde" to install lxde on raspbmc.

Maybe Berryboot would suffice ?

I will always assume you are running Raspbian for desktop and Raspbmc for XMBC !
