Hacked! Ubuntu loves the 360

That wee little unsigned code problem Microsoft dealt with months ago has finally produced some hacking results. Taking advantage of those hackable kernels, Cpasjuste was able to install and run the operating system Ubuntu on his Xbox 360 including web browser functionality. We're sure Microsoft is kicking themselves already, trying to figure out either why they didn't sign their code or why they can't figure out how to get Windows Vista to be compatible. Stupid drivers. So, are we one step closer to a full blown Xbox 360 mod chip or modding community that will unleash terror on every Xbox 360 north of the equator? Or should we just forget about it and go back to playing some video games?
