I finally have my XBMC setup almost as I want it (a few tweaks soon to be put in place) and was wondering what skin you all prefer?

I am running Hybrid - a decent mix of a usable skin (read: not too showy) and modern features.

What do you use, and if at all why?

Xperience 1080 2.1 for XBMC 12. Perfect use of Metro for a TV interface. I love the landscape view for TV episode synopsis.

Apologies, Xperience added (to represent variants). I had a play with it, and liked it, but it didn't fully suit me...

I'm a sucker for nicely designed UIs. It's a refined version of ModernUI, some great design choices.

Other skins are OK but a lot of them are very amateurish.

You're not wrong... I may give it another chance...

Hybrid has been my skin of choice since Eden, will try Xperience though.

I just use Confluence now. There was one that I can't remember the name of from Eden but it never got updated to Frodo. Xperience 1080 is also nice.

So I'm in the middle of modifying Xperience1080 to suit my needs - adding a photos tab and so on. Damn the homescreen on this is a bitch!

I like Confluence, but PM3 works well on my bedroom XBOX outputting 480P (why go 720 on a 19 inch?).
