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.

And yet, you're the first one to bring license issues to this thread. Projection always leads to such ironic avenues...


I didn't mean this particular thread in general, I meant "all over the internet".

I just happen to read a lot of those discussions, so it's the first thing that came to mind when I read the news.
