Lindows funds Xbox hacking...
Michael Robertson, CEO of software company Lindows, has revealed himself as the formerly anonymous donor of $200,000 in prize money in a contest to translate the Linux operating system to Microsoft's Xbox video game console.
The first challenge was to get Linux running on an Xbox, a goal that has already been met by several developers.

The second challenge, to run Linux on an Xbox with no hardware modifications, has been more of a struggle.
Isn't that great... getting people to hack the company that you are up against in court... lol
Looks like he's got quite a few tricks up his sleeve... They're pullin out the big guns.
They're gonna need them.
He's even trying to sue M$ over the copyright for Windows.

is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

Hehe, very interesting articles, thanks for posting.
This fella is a trip, but he's fighting, in a sense, for some fairly worthy causes. While MicroSoft has obviously the upper hand in fights between the two (because of money and backup), these guys are really putting up a fight. Cheers to them.
