Well, the XBox kit doesn't run on Windows, does it? Isn't that the point?tech4all said:If you were trying to make it look like Windows, I think it could be done better. I don't think Microsoft would copy Apple that much. Maybe make the icons more "Windows-like". Just changing the logo doesn't do it justice, IMO.

The XBox runs on a PowerPC. Because of this, the developer kits needed to, also. Because it was the most expedient way to achieve this, IBM uses Powermac G5s as XBox development kits for MS. That's why its funny.

Edit: if I need to go even one step further, the XBox is MS' fairly successful gaming console. The XBox 2 is actively under development atm, and all this applies to it. They both, AFAIK, use PowerPC-derived cores, provided by IBM.
