This is an awesome project that doesn't seem to have the attention on these forums that it deserves. Keep up the great work!
I've been meaning to check out the cvs and take a look at the WIP updates but haven't yet found the time. How's progress?
At the moment OpenDash loads up quickly, is reasonably responsive and quick, is highly skinnable and can run xbes, load skins, reboot, eject the tray and do some basic file operations. In other words it does all the essentials. Unfortunately the input handling is flaky. Maybe 20% of the time OpenDash will load and won't respond to any input. If you reboot and try again it usually works fine. The problem probably lies somewhere in the OpenXDK since I get similar issues with sdldoom. This is the main problem holding up a proper release (the other thing needed is a good looking, complete skin).
If you do build OpenDash from CVS let us know how input is for you - I know dOwnlab is interested in feedback on how the input works on different Xboxes.
