Topic: Anyone know about the status of The BOXEE?

I was wondering if anyone knew about the status of the Boxee Box. I think they went out of business or at least stopped selling this. But do they work at all?

Define "work at all"?

If I remember correctly, they're similar hardware to the Acer Revo series.  nVidia chip set that does HW decode of 1080p.  At this point, depending on use-case, you're probably better off with one of many single-board computers and software like plex or kodi.

Meaning if I get a boxee will it do anything? I have a neo tv and netgear isn't updating anymore but it does work. You don't have to sign in to it just whatever app you want to run. Does boxee run kodi software?
