speak for yourself you douche, the only thing in your ridiculous post that has any shred of FACT is perhaps that YOU mod your stuff for 1 reason and one reason only,
I have 3Xboxes, all 3 modded and all 3 running XBMC
they are my media servers used to stream Music, movies,Pictures to the 3 TV sets I have at home,
NONE of my Xboxes have EVER even played a single game, it was literally open the box, install mod chip and XBMC and plug into TV
or you to come up in here all high and mighty, and TRY to paint ALL Modders with the same brush is just retarded,
so please STFU, and go be a Douche somewhere else
A software pirate and a homebrew user both generate no money for Microsoft. In fact, you've caused them to lose money on those machines. You've caused as much damage as a pirate has.

you are actually quite short-sighted in your assumption that modchips are only used for piracy. maybe that is true in the circles that you usually travel in but here at x-scene we primarily appreciate the truly creative and innovative uses of modchips for the many systems to include linux or homebrew like XBMC. also, blatantly inflammatory and accusatory remarks here are not welcome.
It's quite short-sighted to believe mod-chip companies make mod-chips for use with homebrew. You think Team Xecuter sells mod-chips because of homebrew? Fact is most people who purchase mod-chips do so with the intention of pirating games. Mod-chips owe their existence to the piracy market, you my friend enjoy the perks (homebrew).
Seems Team Xecuter is taking some precautions:
We were sad to discover that many stores were raided yesterday in the USA for selling modchips. Due to all the recent uprise of hacks-out-of-the-box like Wii mods and Pre flashed Xbox mods and pre-flashed 360 consoles we feared this would probably happen.
We feel our mods are shipped in a legal format with Linux pre loaded and any other products we make contain no copyrighted code and no circumvention of copy protection.
However, due to these crazy times we have taken the decision not to supply any linux based modchips (X2 and X3) to any USA stores in future and we will be concentrating on non-modchip products that will benefit and add enjoyment to gaming in general.
