Linux, yes, but not a dual boot situation where you have a legitimate version of the 360 OS and then another OS like Linux. Also, I HIGHLY doubt OSX or Windowx would work on the 360.

I don't condone modding consoles.

Cosmetic modding, eg: Case mods, are perfectly legal.

Internal modding, eg: Removal of Microsoft's OS, replacement of internal hardware, bypassing DRM to play "backed up games" or pirated games, is in violation of Microsoft's Terms of Service. No, you won't necessarily go to jail, but you will get banned from xbox live if Microsoft catches you online with a modded 360.

Because of that, posting ANYTHING here about how to mod a 360, or where to find it, is in violation of the Terms of Use for the Toms Hardware forums:
