Microsoft doesn't want you to modify your Xbox or Xbox 360. It voids your warranty. It might let you pirate games, meaning less revenue for Microsoft and its partners. You might use it to run Linux. Or you might use it to cheat on Xbox Live.

Is it possible for Microsoft to stop modding? Should they try? Or is there a way to engage with the modding community in a way that makes sense for everyone?

Microsoft blogger Ozymandias says he can't condone modding, regardless of the motivation. However, I think a lot of the reasons he uses to support this conclusion don't really hold up.
