The last I heard, not really.
There are some "hacks" out there, but they are "iffy" at best. They run more as an emulation, than directly on the 360.
Something about "graphic acceleration" issues, as I recall.

You might be able to do a softmod on it, and change it to a Linux OS to run XBMC, but I haven't looked into doing it on a 360.
I did it to my Original Xbox to make a media center out of it, and it was kinda fun.    : D
