“In an email to the FreeBSD Hackers mailing list, Rink P.W. Springer reports success in porting FreeBSD 5.4 and 6.0 to the XBox game platform:
Over the last 2 weeks, I have been working on a port of FreeBSD for the XBox. […] The port is fully functional. The framebuffer is fully supported, same goes for sound and USB devices (such as an USB keyboard for the console). Only ethernet is missing, currently […]. Also, a live CD has been created […].
Daemon News via /.
It says on the primary mirror that the CD should probably boot on almost any Xbox that “doesn’t block unsigned binaries”. It requires (and comes with) Cromwell, a bootloader BIOS for Xbox, originally used to make it boot Linux.

The site doesn’t cover the many open source projects to which the BBC has contributed, but only those that the BBC has initiated and managed itself.”

Where’s the open source repository of YLE?
What, they have none?! For shame!
