I bet someone at MicroShaft is just fuming over this one, again. If you’ll recall, A while back, a lot of people over at the XBox Linux Project were putting effort on turning the XBox into a commodity desktop/server appliance. Once someone figure out the encryption junk used, they finally make linux run on an XBox. There’s even a Mandrake 9 release for XBox!
So what does MicroShaft do? Use their financial clout to shut down the foreign makers of the XBox mod chip that makes this possible. On top of that, they released a new modified version of the XBox that was more secure and ‘unmodable’.
Well, it looks like MicroShaft/XBox are someone’s bitch once again. :-)
