The Supposed "Leaked Video of Zune Linux" -- Biggest Hoax of 2007

Recently, a video of the Zune running "Linux" was posted, and surely it wasn't leaked by Mys Videl. The facts just don't add up. 1.

Recently, a video of the Zune running "Linux" was posted, and surely it wasn't leaked by Mys Videl. The facts just don't add up.


1. The YouTube Post: According to the user "ZuneSceneExlusive" from YouTube.com, this video was leaked by Mys Videl. Here is the direct quote:

MysVidel from ZuneBoards.com leaked diz video 2 me... i hope he dusn't get too mad at me 😛

Mys Videl would never leak any kind of secret info to an overly eager 12 year old who can not spell. She also would never leak it to someone she did not trust. If she had trusted him, he would've known that Mys Videl is a SHE not a HE.


2. The ZuneScene Post: If I remember correctly, this video was first posted at ZuneScene.com. In case you haven't known, Mys Videl is an admin from ZuneBoards.com... Now why the hell would she post the video at ZuneScene and not at ZuneBoards? Also, according to one of the admins at ZuneScene, the user who posted the video had the email address of " Mys.Videl@gmail.com." I'll let you know right now, that she does not have an email called " Mys.Videl@gmail.com." In fact, her email address doesn't relate to her username at all.

3. The Video Itself: I'll keep this one nice and short. Mys Videl does not own a camera. You would know this if you had been a member here long enough.

4. Zune Linux: All Mys Videl does for the Zune Linux is some heavy duty debugging. She does no programming. The programming part is up to her friends, who are also working on the Zune Linux. So please, stop bothering her about it. The Zune Linux will come someday, just please be patient. The ipod wasn't hacked in the first few months that it came out. 

So who was it? Probably some prankster trying to screw her over. Discuss this topic here.
