Canada eh
I had heard that Microsoft's efforts on fighting modchips had hurt the linux effort on xbox. With the changing of some of the internal components I know it rendered all the current modchips useless. There has been some new modchips out on the market already for the reconfigured xbox, but I haven't heard anything about linux concerning this. That article mentions needing a modchip to run the xbox-linux, and since linux is that versatile it shouldn't be an issue.

Just thought I'd throw that in here.

Sorry I tend not to make sense a lot. I was saying they didn't want linux on Xbox at first, why they fucked up the mod chips etc... But now they gave in... Was sort of joking, lol sry. That's MS, they don't want mod chips, they want to rule all.
