You need: (see http://xbox-linux.sourceforge.net/)
1. X-Box
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...

Have fun.
