Kodi Entertainment Center

XBMC Renamed As Kodi With Release 14

As posted on XBMC website by Nathan Betzen, XBMC (known as XBox Media Center) will now be called Kodi Entertainment Center. XBMC software has been around for awhile and has under-gone three name changes. First name was Xbox Media Player since 2002, then followed by Xbox Media Center in 2004 before the final name XBMC in 2008. As the application had evolved over the years, the need to change the name was necessary not only to move away from the name Xbox which is more centered at the Xbox gaming platform but also for legal reasons, because the developers never had any sort of legal control over the use of its name, which has resulted in a whole slew of problems.
