Microsoft Applebox

It is indeed true, but very unexpected. Microsoft have shipped development kits for the Xbox 2 – codenamed Xenon – with the Apple G5 running a modified version of Windows. They are also using the ATi Radeon 9800 Pro in the kits, but it is expected that they will be changed to ATi R420’s when they are released later this year. We will have to wait until E3 to see whether or not the final version of the Xenon will contain the Apple G5.
