My brother just got an xbox a couple days ago and it looks pretty cool. I've heard you can put Linux or Windows XP on it. Is this true? If so, how? And are there any other mods or anything cool I can do to it?

Yes you can run win32 apps on it and also install windows xp. But the methods to do this fall into the 'warez' category on this forum probably. I love the xbox, the standard controller is almost big enough for my paws.

why would it be warez, you can do whatever the hell you wanna do with it, it just voids the warranty, its not like you burned your own xbox or downloaded an xbox from the internet and burned it onto a plastic square shaped case with your xbox rw burner.
