    Xbox 360 Clone?

    Hello,

    I was playing on my Xbox 360 and was wondering if there was a linux distro that looks like Xbox 360 os.

    I did a quick search on google and found nothing but that the original 360 os was not compadable with a pc (duh!!)but it said nothing about a distro that looks like Xbox os!

    I know that there is a distro based on Ubuntu that looks like a tablet called Joli os (formally Joli Colud) but nothing that looks like Xbox 360.

    Any help with this question would be welcomed.

    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    No Metro UI, the metro UI is just the new start menu.

    I'm playing with server 2012, it's pretty sweet and amazingly fast surprisingly (since when is windows..fast?) Yea it boots into the Metro UI but it can be disabled and windows 8 will apparently be even more customizable than win7. I'll hold my breath, Unity isn't that customizable.

    REFS is quick if anyone hasn't gave it a go, you do need the RTM version or server 2012 as the RTM version does require a mod but REFS is there.

    Speed wise, it's faster than both btrfs and zfs, haven't had anything crash yet and I've been doing a lot of intense CPU and GPU stuff.

    Wouldn't surprise me if MS took ideas from zfs and btrfs.
