Is OpenELEC better than Raspbmc?

What’s the difference between Raspbmc and xbian?
Xbian is built on top of Raspbian, the main operating system for the Raspberry Pi. Because of that, it’s compatible with most everything that Raspbian is, meaning it’s easy to install packages and add-ons to XBian without a lot of setup. Fot that same reason, XBian has a pretty quick boot process that’s faster than Raspbmc but slower that OpenELEC.
What makes xbian different from OpenELEC?
XBian is all about two things: constant updates and new features. Like OpenELEC, XBian is simple and small. This makes XBian fast to boot, easy to install, and easy to use.
