Linux for Playstation 2 Goes On Sale

Customers eager to get the very first Linux for Playstation 2 kits can preorder them from Sony. The final version of the kit will be shipped at the end of May. The $200 kit also includes a hard drive and other peripherals.

Although Sony feels that most people won't be interested in having the open-source operating system on their consoles, they hope that letting people tinker with the program will produce more and better software developers.

"We are doing this largely for noncommercial reasons. If it just pays for itself as an operating cost, that's fine with us," Sony says.

It isn't security related but some members will find it worth the read.
