XBMC G 13

The conspiracy-theorist/numerologist in me (Big Grin) figured it out... It's the position of the letters in the alphabet, right?

X = 24 (being the 24th letter of the alphabet)
B = 02
M = 13
C = 03
G = 07
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sum = 49 => 4 + 9 = 13 (!!!)

Either you guys are so damn smart, or X-Files really messed up my childhood!

G is the abbreviation for the code name for version 13...
Beside v12 that will be called Frodo all Releases were named like imagined cities...
For v13 I raise my hand and voice and say, let's call it "Gotham"...

Anybody knows the complete list of code names used for XBMC so far, and maybe also a release date for each of them? Just curious... Wink

Since mythical places is a theme in naming an XBMC release, I vote for "Giligan's island".

Thanks to your considerations, the mystery seems in the path for a solution... but... but... rummaging the internet looking for images for Gilligan's Island I discovered this one:
