Great news for Minix media player owners. Minix has announced that it is now a Diamond sponsor for the XBMC Foundation. XBMC Foundation are of course the folks behind Kodi, the open-source software media player that was formerly known as XBMC.

What this means for Minix owners is that as a Diamond sponsor, Minix hardware will get the best version of Kodi for their player. While Kodi is available for a wide range of platforms and most Android media players are supported, Minix users will most likely get versions that are better optimized for Minix hardware. Minix user may also get to experience new features before users of other hardware.

If you are using your Android media player primarily for Kodi/XBMC, Minix has just given another good reason to go or stick with them.
