OpenELEC aims to make home theater PCs as much like your DVD player as possible, using a lightweight, instant-on version of XBMC that updates itself for a maintenance-free media center.

OpenELEC's two main advantages when compared to XMBC are its super fast boot times, and its ability to update and configure XBMC right from XBMC itself—you shouldn't need to deal with the terminal or any other Linux nonsense during the process.
