Hello:
  I want my BBB to be a HTPC for my daughters.

they will be disappointed

Was anybody able to successfully install and run XBMC?
I don't even see a port of XBMC for Angstrom.
Inputs and suggestions are appreciated, thank you.

BBB does not have a hardware video decoder, it can only do SW decoding. Also the HDMI output has only 16 bit color depth.

BBB is a lot, but it's not a good base for a HTPC.
