According to a new report, source code for the original Xbox has leaked online. This was revealed by website The Verge, which confirmed that the leaked Xbox OS was genuine.
The leak is said to include the kernel for the console's operating system, which was a custom version of Windows 2000. It also apparently includes internal documents, the Xbox Development Kit, some build environments and more, although The Verge understands some enthusiasts already had access to this kernel and source code privately.
In a statement to the website, Microsoft revealed that it's looking into the matter:
“We’re aware of these reports and are investigating”
Additionally, source code for a near-final build of Windows NT 3.5 has also reportedly leaked online. It apparently includes "all the necessary build tools" for the dated operating system.
