XBMC is by far the way to go!
I like XBMC more then Boxee because it is faster and is a lot more stable. I use both on my Apple TV and as far as playback of videos (local and streamed) is concerned XBMC beats Boxee hands down, they are crisper and more vivid on my HDTV. Boxee is good software and I think Team Boxee kicks ass but I do not think it will ever be there for the Apple TV because they have higher goals.
I just upgraded to XBMC 9.11 Release Candidate 1 and for all you people who feel intimidated and confused by XBMC they have a new SVN Repo Installer. It makes it easy to install plug-ins and scripts with just a few mouse clicks plus they have a PPC version that I downloaded for my old Power Mac.
It looks like I will be using XBMC a lot more now since it has just about everything Boxee has to offer but with a crisper video experience.
