    I would have gone for 1, 2 and 3.
    I love the way it looks, it does one hell of a job,. Does things no other htpc does and I love open source. it was hard to choose and doesn't make my vote complete.

    I don't know if it does anything other HTPC applications don't, but maybe it will in the future. It has a lot of potential and the development seems to come along very quickly having in mind only one person is involved.

    It looks stunning
    Its Open source.

    however at the moment it doesn't do anything that other htpc software cant do, It needs a few more things before I will use it in anger (Though i reall really want to)

    the basics are:

    much better remote control support
    support for launching external apps from custom buttons
    Full pvr support
    support for external stb's (cable, sat dtv etc) e.g guide and channel changes via external exe or girder.
    Support for more music players or asio support.

    keep up the progress.

    The only thing (for the moment) is that it's an OpenSource program...

    I can't see anything it does and other programs don't...
    It's a rather young software though...

    Maybe when external programs are supported fully ;)

    I'd like K!Tv is supported :D
