"Free60 Project Aims for Linux on Xbox 360
Posted by CmdrTaco on Sunday November 27,

BlueMoon writes "The Free60 Project wiki and
developers mailinglist has been launched. The
project aims to port open source operating
systems like GNU/Linux and Darwin to the
Microsoft Xbox 360 gaming console. The site
already contains some interesting details about
the Xbox 360 security: per-box key stored on CPU,
boot ROM will be on CPU too and a hypervisor
verifies the running state of the kernel."
