Ditto on the beta testing...if you're in to that kind of thing. ;-)
I have two different setups; atom330 + GT240 -and- i3-540 + GT430; that I could do apple-to-apples subjective testing on...

Definitely maybe. Would like to see it "live" as opposed to all the static screenshots.

You are doing an awesome job on the interface. Thanks for your work
I really want to be as beta tester, as well.

I might need some help with it I'm no video editor.

Well, drop us a link to a skin and we'll make video <joke/>
Ronie's coding and your graphics are excellent. Only thing I would be afraid of is readability - some of the views looks quite busy and there's not much spare space around text. But then, maybe it's just bad impression from posted screenshots.
We'll see about that in that video

Think of it as the anti-Alaska.
I think everything is layed out logically and once people start using it, they will see the benefit of all of the features and information we're cramming in.
I'll also say, its defiantly not going to be for everyone.
Ultimately I'd like to be able to offer some stripped down views and some media rich views, so people have some choices. But first, I'd like to get it closer completion
BUT it looks AWESOME on the new 58" Samsung I just installed

Skin is looking great, hope it gets done at some point, I am pretty sure that with this skin I can convert a friend who has been waffling on the matter of using XBMC for his home media or not, lol.

Idea for now playing dialogs.

If you want a video done, I will be happy to help out. I can edit and do post production videos.
Only thing that I would want though would be some possible graphics for the video itself just to make sure that it is not just a bland video.
I can add music scores other bits and bobs without a problem.
Just PM if you want me to have a play.
