First, I want to express my gratitude for the great job the OSMC team is doing and have done with the last update . Yesterday, I have installed the last OSMC update in my Raspberry Pi 2 and I want to give some feedback.
It seems the performance has decreased and now the menus navigation is really slow. When I enter to an option, it takes a few seconds to load the content, while in the previous version in was momentary. I don’t know it is related with the new kodi version or the new skin. Also, the default layout to show the contents it’s boxes of thumbnails. I prefer viewing always the list of names, like before: it loads faster, and I see many information at a glance. I know I could change the layout to a detailed list for the current menu but, could I configure this layout by default for all the menus?
Personally, I don’t like the new skin. It’s just an opinion. I love the old OSMC theme because of its lightweight for light system like Raspberries, it was clean and simple. However the new one has many animations, animations in transitions between contents, it shows an animated logo while loading… I don’t think it is a good theme for light systems…
Anyone knows a theme like the old OSMC one? I really would like having the old theme back again, choosing it from the settings could be enought. Fortunately, I had made a backup before the update… so I have come back to the previous OSMC version while I clear my mind.
