Interesting little tidbit for the weekend: we now know what operating system the Nintendo Switch is running. Since it’s basically an NVIDIA Shield, I kind of expected it to be running Android – heavily modded, of course – but it turns out it’s running something else entirely: it’s running FreeBSD.
Like Sony, Nintendo also opts for FreeBSD for its games console. This means of the four major gaming platforms, two run Windows, and two run FreeBSD. Fascinating.
