There is no way of knowing for certain that the 360 was actually outputting the images to the projector. They could have just plugged the 360 in and turned it on so you saw the green lights and had a DVD player or a PC providing the images that were displayed on the screen.

The images imply that both Linux and MacOS are possible on the 360. If someone has come out with a way to port MacOS X to the 360, I will be buying another one to mod and try it out.

I've never seen it take 4 people to hook up an Xbox 360 ...that was just funny as hell to me and it was so suspect. I think its fake!

The rest of the world can't even begin to get anywhere near running homebrew code on the 360, yet these guys are booting Linux? Doubt it.

Even if it was real, they'd have released their info back at the stage where they got into the system AT ALL- as that alone would have been massive news.
