Linux (almost) hits the Xbox 360, thanks to XeLL boot loader


For those Xbox 360 peeps that've been eyeing the PlayStation 3's Linux happenings jealously, their time is nearly at hand. Working hand in hand with the hypervisor exploit on kernel 4532 and 4548 Xboxen (sorry kernel 4552 kids, you're still out of luck) the XeLL boot loader does all the heavy lifting getting Linux to boot on the 360, minus a working Linux distro to actually run on top of it all. But with XeLL up and running, getting a distro together shouldn't be much trouble, and the 360 should be able to finally offer up niceties that the PS3 has been touting in a legitimate manner since day one.
