Linux: Xbox got more than game

Wired.com reports on efforts to get Linux to work on Microsoft's Xbox. " Microsoft wants to control every living room across the country, making the computer the centerpiece of the home entertainment network. The Xbox, Microsoft's video-game console, has long been rumored to be at the core of that strategy, a dream that may soon come true thanks to a team of hackers who are transforming the game console into a home computer.

The rub is that the newly hacked system will run without any Microsoft software."
