Haha, I hope you know that the Xbox 360's "OS" is based on the Windows kernel.

As for keyboard, the latest firmware updates have allowed USB keyboard support.

$100 per game?! Where are you getting this information? Sources?

I know Blu-Ray is expensive, but I doubt it would drive game costs that much.
