Quote: I definitely won't be getting a Raspberry Pi anytime soon seeing as the guy behind the XBMC-port, Sam Nazarko is the same guy who claims that his Crystalbuntu is superior to AppleTV and OpenELEC quite blatantly. I don't like developers that bad mouth other projects, that's just poor taste.
The other issue is that it seems like he's the sole developer on this project and instead of being a community driven project. Can anyone confirm this?
Confirm what? That Sam is rolling his own build of Linux+XBMC for the RPi? Yes, he's doing that. That it's not community supported/driven? What gives you that idea? Did Sam state that he wouldn't accept any help/assistance/guidance on the project? If he did, I'd like to see where. I'm sure if you're willing to add to the project in a real way, he'd not turn you down.
As far as Sam stating Crystalbuntu is better than Openelec for the ATV1, that's a matter of opinion, and he's free to have his. Personally, I share that opinion. I don't like the locked down nature of Openelec and the inability to change things. To each his own.
