Thereafter, the company will limit its focus to devices such as the D-Link Boxee Box.

On a semi-related comment, why Boxee and XBMC can't record? Why would anyone want to buy a device that doesn't record?

Because originally the software was designed as a media player, not as PVR software for TV streams.

Though XBMC is working on PVR functionality now: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW-TO:Watch_TV_in_XBMC
