    GeeXboX - a popular free distribution based on XBMC 12.0 'Frodo' and the Linux kernel, which is a lightweight media center - has received full support for the Raspberry Pi architecture . Full OpenGL ES hardware acceleration for XBMC is available, hardware video decoding up to 1080p HD and control from a TV remote via HDMI-CEC .
    There has not yet been an official release, but test builds are already regularly posted on the developers website .
    It is worth noting that GeeXboX assemblies also exist for other compact computers Pandaboard, Cubox, ux500 Snowball, nVidia Tegra2 Harmony.
