    Xbox Linux help!

    I'm thinking about getting linux on my old xbox, mainly because it's not getting used at all. Well... I want to know if I can run it without a mouse or keyboard, if it's too slow and if it's good. They didn't solve those questions in the F.A.Q
    I'm not sure if anyone on darkdemon has linux on xbox but if you do tell me some stuff about it!!

    Why would you want to install a useless OS on something useful?

    Linux isn't a useless OS. If it was it wouldn't be as popular as it is.

    As per the question, I've installed linux on a xbox, in my instance I could only use a keyboard and mouse.

    In my opinion I would go for it, I mean it's not like they're making them anymore.

    I've considered it myself, why not add some more features to a console that isn't even supported anymore. Of course I was hesitant because I thought could ruin the firmware, if that's even possible.

    I've tried Linux, and besides server management I don't see why anyone would want to run it as a main OS, or run it at all.

    Sticky you're the equivalent of a macfag but for linux, so shut it.

    I used an old Fedora distro.

    Linux for work removes the bloat that Windows brings about. I don't use it a primary OS but Linux makes the best out of given resources. This isn't a VS thread so don't make it into one.

    Oh I see. Well I've never used Linux in a work environment so I'm basing it from using it for home use.

    I had to install it on my old laptop because it was too shit to run XP, lol.
