What's the advantage of MCE over XBMC

I've been away from this site for awhile; I hacked/installed gentoox on both my xboxes - but never really found a functional use for the abilities of a linux OS running on my XBOX - I now see that MCE is an optional install - and I'm wondering what does this sysem have over XBMC 1.1 ? One of the com...

(640x480 - NTSC - Focus - TV) on second thought ... forget it. denial works for me sometimes too. I never really use gentoox anyway. It was more of a hobby plaything thing anyway - turned out less fun more work than it was worth. I find it rather limited, constrained by xbox usb adapters, case size...

You're right it's something I did. I guess it's my keyboard, or me typing 'magic' and typing 'yes'.... If the whole process is aut...
