The Raspberry Pi is pretty awesome, and I decided to turn mine into a retro games console. When I started, emulation on the RPi was just starting to emerge. I'd been kicking around the idea of writing my own emulator front-end for a while, and decided to finally do it. Enter EmulationStation!
EmulationStation does some stuff:
An awesome community member who goes by the name of Xevin made some really nice themes for EmulationStation a while back. He's been busy as of late, so I've done some slight updates with his themes. Screenshots follow - click for glorious high resolution!
Where you unzip to depends on how your es_systems.cfg file is set up. The easiest way is to extract to ~/.emulationstation/ and make sure the "NAME=" entries in your es_systems.cfg match up with the theme folder names.

Updated January 8, 2013 to include basic variations of every theme!
