ok, silly idea, but…how much would a brand new PIII 733 PC with 64mb of RAM and a 8 Gig HDD cost? Along with Power supply, ethernet and a Geforce3…? Oh, did i meantion a DVD ROM?
Now, assuming that i can get an optmized build (gentoo?) on the xbox which runs at a decent speed (comparable to that of a PC with the same CPU), wouldn’t that be awsome?
I am not that savvy when it comes to Linux and never owned a console before, but building a rendering farm out of 10 Xbox for $150 each is …just awsome. :o
Oh, and I could play Halo2 occasionally, too.
