You may have already heard that XBMC has decided to rename itself to Kodi. This follows on the former name no longer being relevant as well as various legal issues. A few people have been curious about what this means for Raspbmc, so I thought I’d take some time to cover this. As you know, Raspbmc’s successor will be named OSMC and run on multiple platforms (including CuBox-i, Intel NUC, Android and iOS). I’ve been planning Raspbmc’s successor for just under a year, and some of you may remember it was actually going to be called linXBMC. The need for a name change in May is now I’m sure, quite self explanatory.
All in all, a name is just a name, and you’ll still have that great XBMC experience underneath the hood.
I hope this clears things up
