OpenStep, GNUstep I don't really know what Sony wants with this, but they're using GNUstep, so that's something, I guess. "Sony's Networked Application Platform is a project designed to leverage the open source community to build and evolve the next generation application framework for consumer electronic devices. The developer program gives access to a developer community and resources like SDK, tools, documentation and other developers. The foundation upon which this project is base comes from the GNUstep community, whose origin dates back to the OpenStep standard developed by NeXT Computer Inc (now Apple Computer Inc.). While Apple has continued to update their specification in the form of Cocoa and Mac OS X, the GNUstep branch of the tree has diverged considerably."

About damn time Gnustep got someone working on it. Gnustep is the single best project open source has. Rather than copying Microsoft. It'd be better to copy, then extend/improve on Apple. Imagine if a Linux server was as easy to manage as an Apple Xserve? Linux would easily take the market, especially once Samba 4 comes down the pipe with all of it's active directory/open exchange goodness. The usability of Apple combined with the versatility of open source and the Linux kernel's hardware support? bring it on.
