What is OpenELEC?
OpenELEC is an embedded operating system built specifically to run XBMC,
the open source entertainment media hub. The idea behind OpenELEC is to
allow people to user their Home Theatre PC (HTPC) like any other device
you might have attached to your TV, like a DVD player or Sky box.
Instead of having to manage a full operating system, configure it and
install the packages required to turn it into a hybrid media center,
OpenELEC is designed to be simple to install, manage and use, making it
more like running a set-top box than a full-blown computer.
