Games Pretty cool stuff: the PlayStation 4 apparently runs on a version of FreeBSD 9.0 modified by Sony and renamed to 'Orbis OS'. Second generation developer kits use GNU GRUB to boot, and allow you to boot into a graphical or a console mode. Not much else is known at this point, but it's a fun bit of information, and perhaps a boon to homebrew developer and hackers.

Well, libpthread and libc++ and such are not bad code, but they are more crash-prone than the kernel; if a problem in one of them starts bringing down the OS that's kind of inconvenient.
