"light" fallback menus for some systems
I would like to see a "light" menu as a fallback much like there is a fallback mode in some linux distros, where if certain hardware requirements are not met the GUI menus load a less intensive version.

Quite frankly XBMC would be much more viable on lesser equipped systems which can perfofrm SD playback, but have issues with GUI using 100% system resources. I have seen GUI consume 100% of system resources seen on Windows with Nvidia as well as on 2 different Linux distros on a Mac Mini G4, and many oither systems in between.

The menus are the SINGLE MOST LIMITING FACTOR, not the playback

if course this might be in the form of a skin as well

Not everyone wants or needs HD, so why not accommodate the more basic systems?
Work is already being done to revamp the GUI and make it less resource intensive. We do have ARM ports, after all.
And there are different skins available so you can chose which one works best for you

It's also up to the skinner, some have options for disabling animations, most can disable all fanart I think.
