This is just an idea. In my opinion, RR has reached the point where it can expand to other platforms such as the HTPC (home theater PC) and UMPC (ultra mobile PC) without any further changes to the source. I know many of you have thought of doing this before so this is in no way MY idea.
I did some research on HTPC software and surprisingly it is nowhere near as streamlined as you would imagine. Personally, some very old releases of XBMC were far more stable and usable than any current HTPC software. MCE offers some of the best TV scheduling and a solid remote but is fussy about DRM and lacks personalization. Media-Portal, an open-source app created by the founder of XBMC (Erwin Beckers) is also great, but is trying to do to much and appears to be buckling under the weight of it's own features.
From my initial testing, RR is capable of drawing at resolutions up to 1600x1000 without any major issues (This is more than sufficient for the HTPC). Couple that with the enormous amount of features and I think RR could easily be the next best HTPC software out there. In fact it already is... people just don't know it yet.
With that said, how many of you are interested in joining me to work on a basic platform for RR HTPC skins?
btw, feel free to move this thread as it is not exactly car-related
Here is a shot of RRHD, a WIP personal skin that runs at 2560x1600 and is controlled by my Hauppauge TV tuner remote via Girder:
