    I was reading about installing Linux on the xbox and i was wondering if i could use a web browser on linux?

    The xbox would be a perfect little cheap pc for me instead of using my wii for internet browsing

    This is the original Xbox he's talking about. You can't do it with the 360.

    The processor is pretty much just a crapped-down Celeron.
