You need: (see http://xbox-linux.sourceforge.net/)
2. MechAssault - The game (only once!)
3. USB memory - either camera and some USB cable patch or
use the "Action Replay" memory card, the linux installer can
now be found at "Action Replay" site :-)
4. CD-RW with a linux distro.
I think it beats the PC with a small margin, but you can use
your X-Box as DVD player/CD music player/Linux computer and of course
play X-Box games ;-)
I intend to buy 9 more and use them in a linux cluster, for testing
purposes. But think about what you can do with a linux cluster with high
speed graphics card in them...
