In the beginning, it was “XBox Media Center” and all was good. Then, it started running on things other than the original XBox, so they changed the name to be “XBMC”. Some people still felt that the XBMC was still too evocative of its XBox origins, so they had to change it again, to something more generic and lawyer approved. Hence the political correctness.
Also, I was quite drunk when I posted this, so fuck you Strider.
