Sony heeft Linux geselecteerd als ontwikkeling omgeving voor z'n Playstation 2:
The report is in Japanese, which The Register has a bit of a blind spot, but the story essentially suggests Sony is to offer its development tools for Linux.
It's not clear whether the next-generation games console will use Linux as its on-board OS -- Tuesday's launch focused more on the hardware specs. and the PlayStation 2's graphics engine -- but it would certainly be a good choice given the kernel's portability and the fact that the PlayStation 2's nearest rival, Sega's Dreamcast, is based on Windows CE.
