I made a Openelec Raspberry Pi for my mom to access my library (we both have 100Mbps fiber). It works so extremely well I really can't believe it.
It can even stream a 25GB 1080P files without a problem, although it takes about 5 seconds to start playing with that large files. Everything else is just instant.
I agree with you on the interface, but I hope that it's something that will be fixed before the final version.

Streaming access for your mom... Didn't you mean to say 100Mbps ethernet from your room in the basement to upstairs?
