Re: Porting ppc Linux to Xbox 360?


Frankly I hope microsoft burn in hell, but thats my personal view ;)

My other personal view is that I will never buy their products. But if someone else cracks their protection and everyone ends up using their boxens as Linux media centres, then hooray for the good guys...

I just hope Sony drives the price point low enough to really cause Gates and co some pain.

Oh, please.

Not that again.

I didn't start the "boycott" topic. I was responding.

The initial break in porting linux to the Xbox 360 is going to come with the subversion or breaking of the copy protection that will no doubt prevent it from running on the Xbox360, same as it did on the Xbox. A lot of the old hands that did the initial work on the Xbox are planning to return to work on the 360, so it's a matter of sitting and waiting. Remember, with such a closed platform, the first step is cracking the protection, before the porting as a whole can begin.

Oh .. I didn't know that.
