Hey all,


Can someone recommend a skin good for the "technically challenged" too. Too many options means too many ways to get lost.

Ideally I would like to find one where I can have only a couple home screen buttons and have customizable folders (specifically genre folders in library view

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

confluence, the default skin of xbmc, is very much usable for anyone who is not tech savvy and who is 1st time user of xbmc.

this is the type of questions where - ask 100 people, get 100 different answers

What one person thinks is easy another thinks is cluttered, difficult, blah blah blah.

Reality is most of the skins are nearly carbon copies of each other from a layout/view perspective, with more/less eye candy, and most (not all) navigate 90+% the same.

Go install a few, try them, pick one.

my personal opinion (of course) of a few which are "simple" in look'n'feel and navigation...
