RE: The (OSS) Empire Strikes Back!

“There is a community at www.playstation2-linux.com where there is approx 16,500 members … Does this mean we will soon get Windows on Xbox?” – Not likely, if 16,500 members is any indication of popularity.. Microsoft is managing what sort of stuff you can get for the XBox pretty closely, turning it into a general purpose computer is probably pretty far from their minds.

It would be a great way to gain some additional life from the XBox once they’ve abandoned it (replaced it with an XBox2 or something) – sell an upgrade kit for an amount that makes up on how much they lose on the hardware (if they’re still losing money on the hardware) that turns it into a regular PC.
