Hi there,
I'm building a nice HTPC for playing movies media player 80% of the time and torrenting/sabNZB for downloading
I'm about to chose witch OS i need to install and I know lots people go with Ubuntu lite version/Kodi
I wanted to go with Openelec like previously with my Raspberry pi2, but sometime I need maintenance like it's some files corrupted or cleaning folders
with openelec I fund hard to setting up torrenting/server...Sabnzb are pretty fine

do I need to go with a dual boot peraps? booting defaut Kodi and install Ubuntu?
what do you suggest I try to stay away with microsft I want a htpc breeze not overloaded with app
Thanks for your input
Kodibuntu (wiki) maybe
KodiBuntu then just install what you need. eg., sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install transmission-cli transmission-common transmission-daemon

Use the web interface for transmission: http://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/WebInterface
