Very cool, and I'm sure it will save them a lot of money.

This could be the beginning of a HUGE console battle in the near future. Imagine if AOL signs a deal with Sony to use Redhat.

Let's see how long it takes MS to start pumping some their Office software on Xbox. :o

Yeah, sony announced linux for the PS/2 quite awhile back, but it was only the jap-spec PS/2 stations.

NetBSD has been running on the PS/2 boxes for a little while now. :)
