I just bought a Xbox

Is it sad that I just bought a Xbox. It has a Samsung DVD drive and I love it. I do not have the $$ for a 360. Does this make me a tard or what?!?!

nah!

they have better graphx and games than GC and some PS2's The PS2 Slims are crap, my brother had to return his, as it overheated and killed itself. And those are the only current PS2's for sale.
and GC just sucks as far as flexibility and games. I mean, it can't play DVD's, and it is only good if you a little kid. It is just so stupid. Almost all the games are on the educational level, and the ones they do have, are mainly play-ons of old popular games, like zelda, or Sonic. There are few original games. And over all, if you get tired of the xbox games. Just think of it as an overpriced PC. Run Linux on it and get it modded. Use it as a server with backup capabilities. I saw someone made it so into a serve HD, through linux. I mounts like a windows server drive, and he access's it over the network. I also thought he could do a remote desktop with it for maintnance

Good combination...

A Mac and an Xbox are a good combination. There's not a whole lot of good games for the Mac and the alternative, buying a full blown PC, would be a worse move IMHO.

PC

My friend has a mod chip in his and he uses it like a normal PC. He surfs the internet and everything that a normal PC running Linux can. I also plays DVDs without the playback kit.

Then you shouldn't feel like

Then you shouldn't feel like a tard for having bought an xBox.

I know that I sometimes get a little gung ho in my Macintosh supremacy talk and bash Microsoft a little more than they really deserve, but Microsoft actually does make some really good products. The xBox just happens to be one area where Microsoft truly did provide a better product than the competition. Microsoft has many other good products too but I'm gonna stop this nice guy stuff now... I have an image to protect!!!
