Use Apple TV like a Linux Server

Once the jailbreak is complete, I wonder if we can run the apple TV like a linux server. It would be nice to run linux services on it over the network. Any thoughts?

They could work really well as low cost, low power web servers.

you can do it on the old one. i think it would be harder on the new one because it is not intel based.

There's an arm version of debian, so that wont be the problem.

It's getting it to boot into Linux...
