XMB (Extreme Message Board) is a very proud project of mine. Plans for this
baby have been running through my mind since November 2000, but it was
not until January 2001 (Jan 17th, to be exact) that I took action. But I don't wish
to bore you with a drawn out story of how I exactly developed this, that is of no
interest to you. So instead, I bring you XMB. Enjoy!

This is the first XMB release that actually was themeable as we know it today. It was released with several themes in the images directory.

Also the first version to use the template system.

This is also very interesting from the readme file:
Some few people decided to leave XMB and to start a new project called ReBB (Reincarnated Bulletin Board [www.ReBB.net]), those people also brought this version out, which is not officialy supported by xmbforum.com...
