Bittersweet & Questions
Excited for the new release, but sadden by the EOL of this portion of the project. It has been a great run! I still believe that some (mainly uber geeks on these forums) will prefer an HTPC solution than a Set Top Box solution, but I'm glad that the company knows the direction they need to run to be successful. I am still waiting for a Boxee TV, and with the whole crew focused on the Integrated TV/Set Top Box solutions maybe we will see it sooner.
Will the 1.5 release be compatible with 3rd party apps (particularly Fuzz's Launcher App)? Or will the app developer need to update their apps?
The blog post mentioned Boxee Live TV adapter, will this be available PC/Mac/Ubuntu users or this still only an add-on feature for the Boxee Box?
The Boxee software will be Open Sourced in the feature, is this correct?
