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.

its obvious that FreeBSD is on MAC OS X TOO and my PC-BSD 9.1 very stable and fast than any Linux Kernel but its close for Linux for a long time...

this is great for UNIX Community supporters...but i am shock that AMD GPU drivers are not on FreeBSD full support yet...
