Is Xbox 2 Is The Next PC?

The XBOX2 will be Microsoft’s attempt to replace the PC. It will have browsing capabilities, gaming, and a more flexible operating system. (installing end user software, like browsers, and other apps. designed for Windows!!) Though they will still attempt to lock down the BIOS to only work with windows. (no linux for a few months until they can hack it) I think you’re not getting the big picture as MS will be selling this not just as a gaming console, but a box that truly does everything a PC can do, DVD/CD player, TIVO like functionality, plus a gaming console. I have a question that may be interesting. A year or so ago, openssl had this ASN vulnerability, and of course, Microsoft played it up, telling us how open source stuff was insecure. Then, someone started grepping various binaries for the APIs that openssl uses, and lo and behold, a bunch of Microsoft binaries showed up. The rest of the world just applied the latest openssl patches, recompiled, and, in some cases, just downloaded rpms or debs and was done.
