    Well, as I run xDSL on my XBOX, I would have to say, no and yeah. It depends if you want to have a pc or not, as I do, it kinda sucks, nowhere near as fast, looks bad, but it is cool to have linux on my XBOX

    There's no real practical value to doing it, it's more for the "because we can" factor, just like the guys that installed netbsd on a toaster, although they can often make good cheap servers with the hardware they contain.

    I removed the side conversation. This is a Linux forum, let's keep the discussion to Linux.
