you are clueless. this is better then a used $100 android phone and 100x easier to configure for different needs. the fact that its real linux is great, because the software development community is already large.Well you have to give these guys props. Manufacturing a $15 computer and selling it for $40 or more.
That's pretty much exactly what I do. Sell junk for a profit.
in fact, im noticing that xbmc already has so many addons that i dont see why you would need a desktop debian to do most tasks... they can all be done with xbmc.
edit- just found out xbmc does native streaming pls and m3u support. properly too! it works perfect, even when grabbing the pls from a network share.
i have 3 screens above my entertainment center, and i think a raspberry pi is going behind each one
