Terminating XMBC remotely on Ubuntu

Last few weeks I have been testing XMBC 9.11 Alpha/Beta on my Ubuntu Media system. Personally I think it is the best Media manager/player ever :).. But due to the fact it is still a beta release, the application sometimes does not respond or hangs and completely blocks the system.

The easies way to kill it and free your system without a reboot, is just open putty.exe and login remotely to your ubuntu system and issue the following command:

killall -9 xbmc.bin

This will terminate XBMC and will free your system. In my case I just restart XBMC :)
