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.

any signing keys used to sign the software.


Uh...say what? Sorry, my brain didn't comprehend that due to how incredibly stupid it sounded. The signing keys? The private keys? The very core of how the security works and how it won't work if everyone has the keys?
