From a pure performance point of view, there is no significant difference between Libre ELEC, Open ELEC, XBian and the OSMC.
Libre ELEC Libre ELEC is a just enough operating system for Kodi, which means that every additional operation has been taken away and the whole distribution has been optimized for Kodi use only.
However, Libre ELEC has bigger development team and gets updated more frequently.
While Libre ELEC is a good option for many, you may sometimes prefer to have the full Linux operating system running in the background, so that you can add additional features such as home automation and media server capabilities.
OSMC The OSMC is based on the Debian operating system and it will give you more freedom to customize the system compared to Libre ELEC or Open ELEC.
