Xbox 360 to run managed code?

by: Chuck -
I know that the majority of people won't be interested in this story but for programmers like John and I (OK, John more so than myself) this is kind of interesting.  Dan Fernandez posted in his blog recently that Microsoft will be showing off some new things at the GDC next week including managed code running on an Xbox 360 on the .NET CLR.  While most of you are scratching your head on this one this means that a lot more people will be able to develop games for the Xbox 360 using Microsoft's Visual Studio suite of development tools (including the free express versions).  Hopefully we'll get more information on it next week but it's kind of cool to know that I could write an app that would run on an Xbox 360 (and probably crash it...).
