XBian Alternatives

    XBian is described as 'small, fast and lightweight media centre distribution for the Raspberry Pi, CuBox-i, Hummingboard and many more devices to come. It is based on a minimal Debian and therefore offers much of the same freedom as Debian offers' and is an app in the Video & Movies category. There are five alternatives to XBian for Linux, Raspberry Pi, Apple TV, Mac and Windows. The best alternative is OSMC, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like XBian are OpenELEC (Free, Open Source), Raspbmc (Free, Open Source), MythTV (Free, Open Source) and Enna (Free, Open Source).
