    What surprises me is that there's no web browser by default. Maybe for security reasons?
    Who doesn't want to read something on the web sometimes when sitting on the couch by using the big screen rather than the smart phone/tablet?

              Well, that was a pretty... jarring... upgrade.
              If they're going to change the default skin, they shouldn't shove it down your throat on an update. This is especially important on platforms like ANDROID, where typically, the software will automatically be updated in the background. Launched the thing on Friday, and WHAT THE HELL???

                  Since no one is asking, i'll take one for the team...

                  When can we expect a Vulkan port of KODI?

                    They like many projects are probably waiting for widespread mobile support where there will be actual performance benefits.
