As we all know Linux can successfully run on a modded XBOX. What is stopping someone from being able to port Windows XP to the XBOX. It has a CPU, RAM, Video RAM, HDD, MOBO, DVD Reader, etc. All the essential parts of a working windows system?

With this Windown Emulator running under Linux on an XBOX, is it then possible to play PC games on your XBOX, if not what Windows applications/software are you limited to?

it is possible, but it will run so slowly its pointless. most pc games have linux patches anyway, so u dont need windows on the xbox.

your limited to a 700mhz 64mb ram xbox. so you shoudl be able to play games like solitair and games like commander keen real good. dont expect doom3 or simcity 2000 to work.

if you havent see it check out DoxBox (somethin like that) the dos emulator for xbox. it plays a lot of old computer games.

as well as the ports of some old dos games to .xbe

Why would you really want to anyways? Linux is the IDEAL operating system for the Xbox. Windows is a RAM whore too, it would die with the 64mb of ram on the Xbox/
