I’m loving how with a few modifications, these next-gen consoles are becoming true media centers. From running third party apps to installing Linux, it seems that this stuff is just a couple clicks away (if you’re willing to fiddle with your hardware a little bit). One easy mod is this one at Lifehacker: how to make your 360 stream Netflix movies. The trouble is it requires Vista. Yes, there’s the rub.
Still, if you’ve got the setup, why not take advantage of it? The steps look pretty simple, so get on it, fool! And let us know if it works.
