Why is it inaccurate?

Please point it out specifically, (I took great care to copy the relevant data especially and exactly especially for AMD uvd2.2 stuff and spoke to wsnipex about legacy cards so idk what you see that I dont!

Also explain why all hardware lists have different data?

This needs to be improved needs to be consistent across wiki, period, however that is done or not.

a long block of text isn't as easy to read follow, and is also Inconsistent, This is for first time Linux users, they hate reading also. I would agree perhaps better way to do it, so here is your change to prove your superiority.

Please do address the the messiness, clearly you hate my style but refuse to show me better.

Inaccurate and messy work

please point it out and improve it and explain!

Here it is for reference and I would like to see your comments here addressed.

  • x86 x86_64 (Intel/AMD) processor computer capable of booting from CD-ROM/USB drive.
  • Limited PPC support: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=173287
  • Optional is to install to a 8GB (or larger) USB-flash-drive or internal harddrive.
  • Larger than 8GB is required, if you have a lot of media as thumbs and art are cached on it.

NVIDIA GeForce 6-Series

GeForce 8-Series
and newer recommended.

Note: ATI Radeon cards lower than UVD2.2, are not supported with Ubuntu & variants 12.10 base system, using fglrx, due to changes in ATI's drivers. Legacy cards that support the minimum OpenGL requirements still can be installed, but you wont get any hardware acceleration playback in XBMC with fglrx and must remain at a specific version to work without bugs..

For starters, the RAM requirement is wrong. The minimal RAM requirement for XBMC to run on linux hardware, even for v13 Gotham, on x86 systems, is still 256MB. The CPU requirement has been replaced with a recommendation. That recommendation of "dual core" means nothing because XBMC doesn't use more than one core for video decoding, and has only gained the ability to use more cores in v13 Gotham if specifically set to do so, and even that setting discourages turning that on.
If you want to update the GPU text, please do so, but don't format it using that table. That table is a big step backwards in formatting. -- Ned Scott (talk) 02:45, 28 March 2014 (EDT)

YEs, things can always be improved, however you have left out the legacy stuff which is a must because the questions will be asked.

You also left out the hdd/usb and add optional optical drive, you needs a usb a hdd or ssd cannot do without either, and in case you want playback optical media that should also be there.
