You are horrifically wrong. XBMC is not an OS, it is an application. Even when it is the dashboard it is not an OS.

XBMC for xbox is an application for the XBOX OS (which boots from flash). A cut down version of the Win32 Kernel complete with directX type libraries.

XBMC for linux is an application for linux. Basically a re-write of all the XBOX specific stuff to Linux equivalents. Still not an OS.

XBMC for XBOX is supposed to have USB1.1 MSC (Mass Storage Class) support

It cannot read NTFS formatted USB sticks... could that be it??
