Oh edit button, where areth thou?!?!?!
Yes, I'm triple posting. I hope this'll be the last one, because I'm finished reading through this thread again... ((After writing post: Sorry for switching quote styles mid-post, and yes, I do like XPe. Designed for Set-top boxes people, designed for set-top boxes... And sorry if I've been told not to post anything about versions, but this is simply my opinion on some of the posts in this topic
"Wait, isn't this project trying to get a standard Windows running, like 98/ME? XPe is Bios independent, but dosen't that mean it's point is so you can run it on a Non PC device? BIOS coding would not even be nessary, it ciuld just be booted as an XBE, like what they did with WinCE.
I would rather see Win ME running on my xbox, then XPe."
Google XP Embedded. It's Windows XP Professional. Period. Except you can choose not to install certain components and it doesn't give a dang about your BIOS. Oh, and yes, it CAN run fully fledged windows apps. Yes, that means your ordinary Firefox and mIRC'll run on XPe.
"yeah, 'proper windows' is what were aiming for here. not xpe"
"Windows 98 is the best option as it supports many programs and it has a very little system requirement.Lets focus on Windows 98 and not some other embedded os first. After that, we can work on the embedded os'es"
I think that simply put: XPE: Faster, Smaller, Stabler. If set up correctly, supports all Windows applications.

The BIOS in Xbox is in fact some form of XP embedded, the only catch is it only runs games. With hacked BIOS or exploits, more interesting things can run, like XBMC.
So instead of spending effort on trying to run Windows on Xbox natively(almost impossible and of not much use even if it works due to the poor TV display), why not help out openxdk so that apps can be built with it and run natively on Xbox ?
Because noone really wants to do that. Except those that DO want to do that. Programers are humans too. Even if their covered in orange fur, like bannanas and say 'Ook' a lot

I only mentioned ME, because you would think that MS made improvements before they made ME, i personally have no knowlege of ME. If ME is good, then I would rather take 98 SE than 98.
@LESTAT, we don't want to run Embedded, that could be a separate project, but it was mentioned before, we want to run a standard windows version, something that does not require above normal PC knowlege to run.
XPe: It's actually easier to install than windows 98. It's designed for devices with no keyboard or mouse, so you get the picture

so Scan-C is MIA and h8raid is banned.
Do you think Xindows (Or M$, depending on how you like your conspirasy theory) assasinated Scan-C and got h8raid banned because they had a breakthrough on The WinXBE Project?
BTW: The FTP server's down
More of my opinions on XPE: Build the Xbox drivers right into the OS.

XPe is much better and a reasonable thing to run, win98 is just slow and shit on xbox. If you are wondering "I cant afford a winxpe license!" There is a FREE beta copy that you could run legally.
And a 120-day evaluation kit... Use your imagination, people.
