    if bill knew we could put linux on his precious x-box he would have a heart attack. lol. he would probably release a statement saying it was "unnatural", "wrong", "unchristian" and "communist". lol
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    Hmmm, a heart attack?

    Maybe someone should tell him after all...


    And no, he wouldn't necessarily call it communist because he's helping the commies censor the internet and likes their strict government-run capitalism.

    as for the ps3, I probably won't get one... I've never really been a fan of consoles, even tho I've got a GC and such. I find that if you wait long enough, you can just emulate the stuff on a computer for free...

    That and most of the controls for consoles suck.
