Its pretty much like the current logo, just with a different font and some smoke. I think it looks pretty cool though.

In my opinion it should no longer be XBMC Media Center as the original meaning of XBMC is Xbox Media Center, it's like saying Media Center twice.

Another meaning for XBMC should discussed IMHO.

My idea is simply XBMC (cut the media center) and have it mean something like Xtremely Badass Media Center, or something else awesome...

Either way my first idea for a splash:

Elegant and simple.

I like the idea of recursive acronyms, like GNU stands for "GNU is Not Unix", LAME stands for "LAME Ain't an Mp3 Encoder". I guess XBMC already is a recursive acronym for "XBmc Media Center", but the B could be given another meaing, like "Xbmc Beats other Media Centers" or something...

Im with XBMCG33k on this nice logo simple and clean he also has a badass alternate meaning to xbmc i don't know if the devs would be up for changing the meaning of XBMC it would mean dropping its heritage in a way. but it would be nice to have a alternate meaning i get tired of explaining to people once they see my setup why they cant install it on their XBOX 360.

at least its not still xbmp and whats up with X.MBC? tekzilla always get it wrong good work anyway guys nice splash screens.

And its also not much different from the current one really aside from the font. What we need is some more out of the box thinking and like I previously said something that also lends itself well to being an square icon as well (maybe a picture and some text in the logo and the picture would become the icon

What we really need is something professional and original that will basically be instantly recognized as XBMC for many years to come

@dgsgc - nice work. I like the integration of 'media centre'. The only thing that looks a little off is the M looks a little narrow compared to the other letters. Maybe I just need more cofee this early. :-)
