OpenElec is basically the same as Kodi. The biggest different is that OpenElec is a stripped version of Ubuntu version of Kodi that is meant to load fast. I run this on a Zotac Mini PC attached to my big screen tv. I used Freenas for fileserver and Zotac has 1gb hard drive to store files if needed. It loads VERY fast. Definitely better than loading Windows with Kodi on this machine.
