    Welcome.

    Quoting:
    The short answer is no.
    The longer answer is that any code that attempts to run on the Xbox One needs to be cryptographically signed using a recognized key. If the software is not correctly signed, the Xbox One will not run the code. In order to run Linux, the boot code would have to be correctly code signed so that the boot strap system in the Xbox One will launch the Linux boot loader. To date, no one has been able to crack the Xbox One’s cryptographic signature system to allow reliably booting home brew software.

    It isn't and it's just clickbait. If you follow the link to "download Linux" you'll find a distro from 2004!!!

    you could build your own or buy a steam machine. get some steam controlers... benefits are that they are upgradable, you can then add steam os on it, steam vr...
    Read the easy to understand, lots of pics Ubuntu manual.
    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?
    Disk backup (works on newer PC): Clonezilla
    User friendly full disk backup Redobackup is now back as Rescuezilla
