I knew it was a matter of time before someone did this...

I bet it would make a very nice Linux box. I would be surprised if someone developed a linux system for it.

or a windows for that fact , a dothan 1 ghz and a geforce 7300 go would make an excellent lan box for cs and wc3 ;)

Windows is more of a stretch then Linux would be. Linux can be written for anything...

I wouldn't mind have a PS3 with Yellow Dog Linux installed on it.

It's legit, and I also remember reading it may be possible to swap out the processor, but heat might be an issue.

If that's true, a processor swap would be a real bad idea unless you could cool it somehow. I don't think it has any fans in it. :explode2:

Average Temperatures
The AppleTV averaged 40.15C (104.27F) when playing content from its hard drive, and averaged 36.58C (97.8F) when in sleep mode. The highest temp recorded while playing content was 44.27C (111.68F). Ambient room temperature, airflow near the AppleTV and even room lighting have slight effects on the running temps.

But why so hot as such low voltage and clocks?

This should explain it:
