Xbox transformed into Linux PC

"A group of programmers have managed to turn Microsoft's Xbox gaming console -- which is built on standard components found in a PC -- back into a desktop computer.

That is the effect, at least, of a breakthrough by the Xbox Linux Project, which on Monday said it had managed to boot a version of the Linux operating system on the Xbox. Project members said they had loaded SuSE Linux 8 on the machine, along with the graphical user interface software Gnome and KDE, KMail email software and the StarOffice office suite."
