Boxee on 2010 AppleTV?

I looked around and couldn't find anything about this, but maybe I'm blind. Does anyone know anything about Boxee running on the new AppleTV? I have one of the first 40GB AppleTVs and love it, but want to move it into the bedroom and get a new AppleTV for the living room.

I run a media center off of my Mac Pro and 90% or more of my collection is in avi. Boxee handles this beautifully - just want to confirm I'll be able to do the same thing on the new AppleTV.

Thanks!

The new Apple TV (2010) cannot run Boxee at this time. It may never run Boxee as it would require a lot of porting from Intell to ARM.

They are not.. You can't watch anything but Apple formatted videos. This is why I waited and purchased two Boxee Boxes next week! Man that thing is SEXY and it upscales all content to 1080p!

You want the boxee box..

I've also considered the ATV, but for 100$ more, the boxee box seems to give so much more value. At least for anyone that wants more than just itunes or netflix.
