* Sony Flips Linux The Bird

Playstation2/Sony
Sony's gone ahead and removed the Linux option from the next iteration of the PS3; Glyn Moody of Computerworld UK is unamused.

The one glimmer of hope for the company was the PS3. Now, that might seem relevant to business users, but Sony's decision to allow other operating systems ? like GNU/Linux ? to be installed on the PS3 turned what seems a rather specialised piece of kit into something rather splendid: a really low-cost supercomputer. Indeed, if you needed really high-end computing, the PS3+GNU/Linux combination was probably the cheapest way to achieve this.
And there it goes. One nifty feature of the PS3 - not like it has many games to recommend it, sadly - bites the dust.
