I didn't see a linux forum , though im almost positive there is/was one. but my question is as follows. I'm thinking about putting on linux via MechAssault Installer, anyone have and suggestions/experience with it? I'm curious to know general stuff about it, like:

- is it worth it?
- since it's a new box, it's got LIVE on the dash already, does it affect that?

and so on, i'm just curious who has it, and if they suggest it, or a diff linux release

i dont got it, but thats beacuse im to lazy to put a new HDD in mine (or too poor, same difference XD)

anyway, from what i hear of it, its not worth it very much yet, it still doesnt have very good graphics support, id wait until it gets OpenGL support, then you can run WineX and play all your favorite windows games on my xbox

i use Linux for my PC Operating system, but id love to expirement around with it on linux, just to be like "Hey, im IMing you with my Xbox" laugh.gif

Imo no, very cool too fiddle with but would run better on a crap pc .... I'd take 3 gigs of your windows partition instead but everyone should install it once just for the xbox adventure.

Speaking of, anyone see those pimped IBM/Linux ads. cool marketing!
