If anyone needs some extra income:Seems like you can make 200.000 bucks if you get a xbox to work with Linux.

Is that 200 dollars? US? Where? Did you read that somewhere? Or are you offering? Do we get a free Xbox to try on? Do you mean Xbox Games? Cool, lots of good questions for you.

It's 200.000.- US$.Seems like some guy is offering it thru some german computer club - they swear the money is real.Background is either that somebody really doesn't like M$ (can't imagine why) or sees a opportunity.The Xbox is a real cheap computer with RAM and HD.If you get it to work for normal computing it would be a real interesting deal at the current pice plus a real nasty blow to M$ since they lose money with every box sold.You can have a look at the article at http://www.spiegel.de if you speak Kraut.
