Linux hackers crack Xbox console
The Free-X group had been requesting the release of a "signed" Linux boot loader from Microsoft, which would allow Xbox owners to run the open source operating system without any hardware modifications or the exploitation of the console.
Group representatives reject claims they are encouraging piracy and accuse the software company of failing to protect its game developers' intellectual property. A signed boot loader will not allow the console to run pirated games, whereas the exploit they have developed will. Free-X say piracy is not something they wish to encourage.
