This is truly GREAT news. A really big thank you to both for the enthusiasm shown lately in this thread
For the first time since I used XBMC daily on my old Xbox 1, I haven't installed the beta versions because I can't go back to any other skin. I've tried, it just don't stick beyond a couple of days. And as pointed out earlier in this thread by garyi "What makes it important is *true* simplicity which means my entire family can enjoy the system.". This is so true. I have 3 kids and the smallest one at age 6 uses XBMC with Elipsis like a champ and without any trouble.
Looking forward to when you have anything to show the community, but in your own time. I can wait as long as I know there is something to wait for.
