Android XBMC vs Embedded Linux XBMC

 

The chart below shows a basic breakdown of how the two operating systems compare. For most, I would recommend using Android with XBMC as it is easier to use and configure. For some, that are comfortable with flashing firmware and only use XBMC, Embedded linux may be the better option.
