    Thumbs up BIG LINUX NEWS !!! linux os for the ps2

    -------------------------------------------------CL-----------------------------------------------------

    I just found out that a comp attachment is coming out for the Sony PlayStation 2 that will be running a LINUX OS...... The report said that you would be able to program games and do word processing.. The attachment will be $300 US. All I know about it as of now is that it will come with a 40 gig hard drive.. I really am interested in this!!! It would be cool if I could run Linux emulators for NES, Arcade,TG16 or the Windows one and so on........ Sony really wants to compete with the Microsoft X-Box huh lol............

    What do you people think of this??

    There is no competition between PS2 and the XBOX. PS1/2 has something like a few hundred millions units sold compared to a few hundred thousand.

    That's stupid to think PS2 has to run linux to compete, but, oh well, whatever floats your boat.

    theres more to this...................

    Aside form the peope that already have ps2. Think about it man what if you did not have a computer of your own and you like consoles and you also wanted to play all the newest games and wanted the best of both worlds.

    (ps2)$300 + (Linux & hardware) $300 = $600

    Better then a computer that is worth $600...

    Are you telling me you are not interested at all about this not even alittle bit????????

    If your friend got it would you go over his house and mess around with it???

    Not better than a PC worth 600, not at all. you have much more capability in a PC than a console. For instance, On a cheap-o PC you can run all the N64, playstation, etc.etc. games you want. Can't say that for any one of those consoles.


    I still think it's a dopey idea. Sorry.
