What  would  ever be the point of the port? Paying Microsoft for  hardware
that  runs Linux? When I come to think of it, Microsoft tolerate losses on
the X360 in hopes of making up for it through game sales.


Think about it...

Linux Nirvana and Microsoft budget drains at the same time...

Suits me well and makes Linux an even more enjoyable ride...

Ironically, Microsoft distribute decent hardware (made elsewhere, then re-
labelled),  but they have never written decent code. Yet, they continue to
be called Microsoft and not Microhard. If Microsoft was humanised, I guess
it  wouldn't last in bed for very long (not with its floppies support any-
way). To make matters worse, it will end up catching a virus and die.
