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."
