Already better than Kodi

openElec became Libreelec. xbmc is kodi.

OSMC is better than Kodi (and its terrible forks).
OSMC works a lot better on embedded hardware - especially videoplayback.
Kodi HD playback on Raspi is better with OSMC.

Kodi 17 and later plays nice. TV/PVR is still pretty slow.

Raspberry Pi Model 1 & 2

I gave this a go on both my Raspberry Pi's, the new version 2 & the old version. I was having trouble with OpenELEC & the version installed through NOOBs so I downloaded & put the version from the OSMC website straight on as the only os. I no longer have any problems, OSMC is much faster than other Kodi distros for the Pi that I've tried, it has such a clean modern look that is totally unique & fitting for the Linux based OS Media Centre, much prettier UI/Skin than even Kodi for PC in my opinion.

If you're having Issues on your raspberry pi's with other Kodi distros than give this a go.
