Ok tried it and it's really AWESOME.
Just a bit too much XboX related for the Linux version but it's a minor 
nitpick. It just works pretty fine.

Also, while you claims it's GPL, I really can't see how
(except from XBMC original code).
Looking at the so called "sources" in SVN, there are only binary .so files !


Same goes for every other project you've imported.
That doesn't sound really "legal" to me.

But I agree that, from a feature point of view, I'm really impressed ;-)
