Avatars and, honestly, XBL is better than Home. You make a stupid/cute/cool mini version of yourself that's much better than a still image for profiles and you can talk, group together, watch movies, watch ESPN and start/join game sessions much faster than this crap.

Sure you actually have to pay for Live but it's better than having to play Second Life and constantly download/update places. Not to mention XBL is more practical, if only Microsoft didn't shove ads and useless "web videos" down our throats...
