For those of you wondering about xbox compatability, I've been testing it and the xbox xhokes bigtime on Stark. I'm hoping to try to make an xbox friendly xpr but for some reason the xbr creator keeps failing on me.

I think it's something at your end. I just downloaded the file and it took no time at all.

That is just INSANE!
Can't wait to turn my HTPC into a beautiful Aeon box.

Awesome. This should be the default XBMC skin in my opinion.

Video looks fantastic hard to believe this is the work of just one man.
Nothing else comes close after seeing that better start building a new htpc for it to run on.

And I thought that I was already fully hyped about this skin.
Those videos are truly amazing. I can hardly wait for the end of the month.
Thx for sharing and for the ultra cool work you have done.
And I still hope that some good beta tester will post some screens on Brazilian portuguese...

Bit early to say that isnt it lol you have not used it yet
From looking at the video looks like an amazing skin and hopefully it will suit my needs but from what I have found so far not many skins do what I need.
Initially you look at a skin and all the bells and whistles are nice but after you use the skin for a while you find you wish it was quicker to do this or that.
At the moment I am using the focus skin because its simple. It does the job I require and its easy to use.
After using Aeon I found even though it was nice looking it was not as smooth to use as focus. I suppose what I mean is the 1st few time syou use a skin with all the new flashy gfx etc its always nice but after a while you think...hummm I would rather cut that out to make finding what I require quicker.
When you have about 20,000 albums in your music library you want the quickest method of finding the album you want. Yes cover flow looks good but not practical for searching all albums etc. Wall looks nice but to be honest I dont like using it.
What I like is simple. Select how you wish to browse form a list... Genre, Artist, Album, year , etc etc. Lets say you select Genre...have a list of genres and each one you move mouse over it displays an image in the backgorund for that genre...When you select genre you get band list and each band you move over you get band image in background...select that band you get get same thing for albums.. Its simple and easy to use.
Dont get me wrong I love the bells and whistles but when used correctly.. I am keeping my fingers crossed for this skin as I have been watching development for some time and hope it has that ease of use edge in which case I will change from focus..

just out of curiosity, which tool did you use to capture the vid? looks pretty smooth apart from the movie view, as you mentioned.
