First legal Linux program runs on Xbox

You'll need a modded XBox for this...

The first Linux program to run legally on Xbox has been released, says the Xbox Linux Project. It is not clear to us what the program, which was created without the Xbox SDK, actually does, and just maybe all it does is put Tux on the Xbox screen, but still, it's progress.

The Xbox Linux Project aims to overcome the best-laid plans of Microsoft's licensing Stasi by developing a version of Linux which you can get running on an Xbox without having to go to jail afterwards, and as we reported last week, it's dangling a $200,000 reward in the quest for success by the end of this year.
