    Not without hardware modifications.

    yesterday revealed himself as the donor of $200,000 that will be paid to whoever can make the Linux operating system run on an unmodified Microsoft Xbox gaming console.

    check slashdot.org Sunday's posts... it's actually only 100 grand... the 200 is split between the one with and the one without hardware mods... get your facts straight before posting next time...

    if those two turn out to be the same person, then it WOULD be $200k :P
    I came up with a cool phrase to put down here, but i forgot it...

    true... and you'd have an accurate answer there if the origional thread creater had specified that in the title. To simply get linux to run on the Xbox is a $100 grand prize... as stated.

    Get his facts straight? Jeez..
    I do not doubt that your information is true, but even CNN (which must be considered a reliable source) doen't mention it in this article:
    http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/fun.gam...eut/index.html

    Please, not everyone is frequenting slashdot...

    SO if CNN said the sky was falling, would you believe that too?

    Don't take everything you read, even from a reliable source as being 100% correct all the time.

    Besides... who do you think is more correct... a general news site or a techie/nerd site on this subject?

    CNN's tech news is usually, like most mainstream media, either way off base or incomplete.
