    Nope. It's a software package that enables your xbox to play all kinds of media files, ranging from MP3's to DivX and JPG-files. Be aware you need a modded Xbox for it, because the software isn't approved by Microsoft, and of course modding your xbox is illegal.

    That's why Bill is threatening to take his xbox home with him.

    It's my xbox you, you, you and you can play, if I don't get my own way (rattle flys out of pram):) you can all go back to Linux.

    Back when they were newer it was a cheap Linux machine basically, however now it's just a novelty, as PC prices are stupidly cheap anyway :D but it does still make for a nice small linux machine you can hide away somewhere :)
