Well i got me an xbox today. Within 20min of being home I had already taken it apart and currently working on gettin linux on it. I plan on flashin the TSOP and using it as a dedicated movie/mp3 server. So far it has been very interesting. Just reading right now. Tommorow I might actually get to soldering the points and puttin Linux on it. I will keep you guys up to date.

If I brought one of those into my house it would spontaneously combust.

lol.

in all fairness, i can honestly say, when you forget about the manufacturer, the ugly shape, the massive joypads, and the stupid subscription, the xbox can be really quite oops. :P
