For those who are so fond of XPE, you do know that there would be some licensing requirement that will never make it possible on Xbox, don't you ? Either MS would simply deny you from distributing it or the royalty would be too high for 'amateurs' I saw here ;-)

There IS a Timebombed version, and a beta which I doubt has a timebomb. Both are perfectly ok to distrobute from what I've heard.

It's legaler than those hacked up M$ bioses (of which I think most bioses are), and the XDK compiled files that aren't supposed to be distrobuted without M$'s consent.

If there were legal issues in relation to distributing the full XP Embedded OS, the author could always just distribute the Target Designer project file and simply include download and build instructions to make it easier for end users to set up. It shouldn't take anymore than a few minutes to generate the OS image build and has the added benefit of letting the end user add some optional components they may wish to use....

XPe should also work fine in an emulator like QEMU if you want to try, though its just not the same... sad.gif

Oh, and Pocket PCs are built on "Windows CE", not XP.
Also, there is no such thing as "Windows CE Embedded." Its always embedded anyway because its designed as an Embedded OS. tongue.gif

Interesting perspective. I thought building OS are for geeks and people asking for Windows on Xbox seems to be not in that camp. BTW, what you are saying is that XPE is effectively FREE so long I don't mind building the OS ? Hard to believe as assuming that I am a mid to large size corp, I can do what you said and popular all my desktop with tailor made XP(like a customized distro in linux term) and save hundreds of K(if not millions) per year license fee ?

I see. So the users of this phentom XPE on Xbox release just need to rebuild it every 120 days, that sounds like a nice solution ;-)

Yes, just use the XBCD drivers, and the ControlMK software from the same place.

Hey!
I thought that I can help you out with coding, if needed. So if you are trying port Windows XP for XBox I am in. But only for make a chalange, because I think linux is better on XBox than WinXP, although XBox kernel is someting like Windows 2000 kernel, so there is posibilities that that one is going to work. dry.gif
