Sony vs. Microsoft - the mighty sword of Unix
That amused me. Sony's PS3 competes with Microsoft's Xbox, but that's not the only place the two are bumping heads: Sony is trying to prevent Microsoft from dominating Digital Rights Management. So blowing a raspberry at Bill and the boys with Unix on PS3 is a pretty small part of this sumo wrestling match.
An Xbox can run Linux, but I was curious about the reference to Mac OS X for the PS3. It would seem that Apple's move to Intel stops that idea dead in its tracks, but who knows?
Oh well: I don't have an Xbox or a PS3 and aren't likely to be getting either. As I've aged, I've lost interest in gaming. I guess there's just too much else to do. Maybe Sony will release a "Dark Warlords of the Net" game with a heroic Johnny Appleseed and his penguin sidekick battling a nasty corporation.. oh, wait, we're playing that game in real life, aren't we?
Got something to add? Send me email.
