| Warning: Kodi does not recommend the use of OpenElec as it is no longer actively maintaned. We recommend LibreELEC 
The only conclusion that can reasonably be drawn from all of this is that OpenELEC is now abandoned.
OpenELEC (short for "Open Embedded Linux Entertainment Center") is a free and open source, small and very fast booting, embedded operating system. OpenELEC is a complete media center software suite that comes with a pre-configured version of Kodi and third-party add-ons with retro video game console emulators and PVR plugins.
OpenELEC is also designed to be used with flash based drives, like compact flash, USB drives, or SSDs.
