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.

Phoronix ran this story as well, and the comments are people trashing the BSD license and a DirectX vs OpenGL flamewar. There are some people trying to defend the BSD license, but they're out numbered by the GPL trolls.

These really are trolls. There is one account that keeps getting banned for posting nothing but crap whenever anything BSD related is mentioned.
