    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.
