 Programmer Puts Penguin on Xbox

ZDNet UK reports on an effort to port Linux to the XBox.

"Michael Steil, a German programmer, has built an application called "linuxpreview", which simply flashes the Xbox LED and draws a penguin on the Xbox start-up screen, along with the message "Xbox Linux Coming Soon!" and a link to the Xbox Linux Web site. However, it is touted as the first application to run on Xbox without using tools from the official Xbox Software Development Kit (SDK), and is the first step toward essentially turning the Xbox into a Linux-based PC."
