Difference between software on box and PC software?
Can someone please tell me what the differences are? It seems that people are saying the BB software is gimped. Ive been using Boxee on my PC and I love it. How different are they? Also, is the interface in fact jaggy as one user said?

The UI is not jaggy.
But the UI is dramatically different. You'll get used to it, but you'd better start reading some reviews (elsewhere) and looking at screen shots to decide if it will suit you. A lot is being added in updates to the BB software. The desktop software version you're using now is as good as dead - it will move to the new UI whenever the next update is released (which could be a long time).

Well the UI I don't much care about, as long as its hi res. I've been reading a lot of reviews but is there anyway you can give me a quick rundown of what the BB *doesnt* have versus its pc sibling. Like, afaik, it doesnt seem to have Netflix. And people are saying tagging is messed up. Is it worse than on the pc version? If I can get the same tagging and local media organization + playback as I do on the pc version, I'm so in. But I can't find a clear answer. Thanks!

I have both the pc and box and a lot of content (same content on both) and both software identifies the same amount of files and always misses or doesnt scrap the same ones.
