If so i probably will do something similar.
Prefer the menu barless
I imagine you can create something similar with the bio info people have for their artists as well as some library stats. But whats the point? Most music library's are far too broad to expect user's and scrapers to find fanart and bio's for every artist. I think I have over 6000 artists in my music library, I have never imported it into xbmc because I know it will be impossible to get artist thumbs for even half the artists and most skins rely on artist thumbs. Look at the actual Zune library, 3 columns one for Artists, one for albums and one for songs. Another great example is Windows media center's music section, they nailed it. XBMC needs an iPod experience from the sofa, some skins while using file views to navigate music do get pretty close. The only thing a music section should rely on is album art. Of course this all a matter of opinion.
Instead of artists thumbs would it be possible to preview album art from the artists your navigating through? Could you even display a selection of album artwork while browsing artists within a library? I'm not sure if this would be a big library change or just a script (all you would be doing is replacing artist thumbs with album artwork), would be interesting to hear skinner's views on music librarys.
The menu without bar is great!
Have you done any font test's?
