Vajon teljesen a véletlennek köszönhető az, hogy a nagy konzolháborúban az Xbox nagy vetélytársa a Sony, konzolját úgy alakítja ki, hogy linuxot tudjon futtatni rajta a júzer?
Since the start of the 2000s, Sony has used the fact that the PlayStation 2 can run Linux in their marketing. They promoted the release of PS2 Linux Kit, it included a Linux-based operating system, a USB keyboard and mouse, a VGA adapter, a PlayStation 2 network adaptor (Ethernet only), and a 40 GB hard disk drive (HDD).
Originally Sony stated that Linux would be Pre-Installed in the PlayStation 3's hard drive, however the plan was scrapped for unknown reasons and current units do not include Linux pre-installed. However, Sony has included an option in the XMB menu to install other operating systems such as Linux. Sony has been quoted in an interview stating, "It was fully intended that you, a PS3 owner, could play games, watch movies, view photos, listen to music, and run a full-featured Linux operating system that transforms your PS3 into a home computer."
