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.

We seem to have managed to avoid that here, amazingly. A couple of years ago the flamewars would have been raging hard by now.
Maybe we grew up or the stupid fools moved elsewhere. Either way it's a positive development.
