Im quite convinced today's boxee fan base is the gadget crowd and Htpc aficionados.
I have concerns for boxee's aspiration to be a dumb blond settop box.
I say yes, that is absolutely the correct strategy for mass market penetration. But least we forget that the current users are not the "mass market"
In my opinion boxee needs an advanced mode for the savvy. Give the geek the power to control his viewing experience to a tee while keeping the grandmas life relatively trouble free.
Dare I ask for a tick box which requests commitment if you wish to be a superhero. And if undertaken give us Xbmc class tweaks.
