http://www.linuxquestions.org – Well one time I walked in a store talking about opening a xbox 360 to get rid of the dust and I was confronted by the staff(:tisk:) saying "It's against the law to even open the xbox 360." (:doh:) Is Microsoft getting sew happy again?:mad: (If so is it even legal to talk about Microsoft?) How far does this extend to just xbox or other game systems? :confused: Now what's against the law and what's not against the law with game systems now? (Can I put Linux on my Xbox as long as I promise to never use the xbox OS ever again?:banghead:) EDIT: The USA where freedom comes false hope. (HowTos)
