    Then Read it as Koh-dye. Is that manly and/or heterosexual enough for you?

      Yeah, lousy name. Perhaps an evolution of the old one would have been better. Like ABMC? ("Any" Box?)

        Yeah, let's do the Apple thing and prefix everything with a letter! That'll sell. Being kinda serious =D

        And agreed with the odd name; Kodi's not exactly something I'd associate with media centre's, not is it a memorable name for software in general. Granted, someone may have had a family ember or dog or something and I can understand that and naming the project internally, but publicly it's kinda plain. Not sure about being limp-wristhted, though!

          A name change is okay, since it actually is far beyond XBOX and mentions of XBOX causes my stomach to cringe but I would have preferred something that still resembles the old name. Kodi sounds like some KDE project and maybe a developer environment (coding <-> Kodi) but it doesn't remind me of anything XBMC used to be.

            Kodiak Bear!

            Easy to remember, at least. Not a fan of the new logo, though.

                or KMC? Kodi Media Center
                Although like others a K app that is not part of KDE is strange...

                  Kodi: about the home.

                  also similar to Microsoft Kodu.

                    To people complaining it doesn't "sound" media-centre-esque : does Plex sound like an AV software to you ? And Steam a video game one ?

                      Which would completely defeat the purpose, which is to avoid intellectual property issues with the Xbox trademark.
