I think you guys got it all wrong. Here is what is going on. This group has found a way that you can run Linux on a Xbox without modding it, and it is not the 007Saved game hack either, it is suppose to be this new code that they probebly force feed the xbox and make it do what ever they want. Now what they are trying to do is make Microsoft Sign Linux software for the xbox, basicly MS will have to give the Xbox-Linux project a Key that will allow it to run on a unmodded xbox just like any retail game would. Now if MS does not help Linux by giving it a Key to run on the xbox, then this groups says it will release its version of Linux that you can put on a CD, put in a Unoppend Xbox that is not modded in any way and run linux on it. This would be bad because that code that they have will then be stolen and released for Xbox games, so that you would be able to put that code on a DVD-R with the Xbox game and play it on a Unmodded xbox. This group is not blackmailing at all, they are just saying that Linux will run on a unmodded xbox, and if MS wants to help they have the opertunity now, but if they don;t it would make Xbox game piracy a lot easier. Kinda like the Dreamcast if anyone ever had one of those, how you could play copied games without having to install any kind of modchip.
