http://www.team-mediaportal.com/, not to say that Linuxmce as a home automation machine isn't great, because it is, but maybe we can grab some UI ideas from them or incorporate these UI's, so we can get linuxmce to look like this.  check it out.

If you guys really want to do UI work in LinuxMCE, watch my screencasts:

Hey tschak909, first, if nobody has said it yet thanks for taking the time to make those screencasts.  I was in the middle of replying with the post below, you beat me to the post button, anyway,...
 
Does anybody know if it would be possible to implement this in Linuxmce?  I would go deeper into the screencasts,  and work towards new UI's if I knew it was possible to mimick, use, or make UI's that aesthetically appealing in Linuxmce with HADesigner if that's the only program that can be used.

HADesigner is currently the program for doing UI work for Orbiter.

Please undersrtand, that Orbiter is much more advanced than XBMC, or most of those skinning systems.

It was designed to handle multiple targets, multiple devices, multiple aspect ratios...ranging from On-screen displays, to cell phones, to internet tablets, to PDAs, to displays on IP phones...all of which must be implemented for a new UI design.

Please watch the screencasts in their entirety.
