wow someone defending sony.. first let me correct you..
as for the linux issue it truly is a hunk of crap and I can understand why sony wont give any money back if people try and install it on there system freeware operating systems
yes the issues is a hunk of crap i PAID for the hardware i can do what ever i want with it.. i can use it as they want or code my own stuff for it, or take a big steamy crap on it. Linux is not freeware , its free-software. HUGE difference one being freeware does not require sourcecode to be provided.Also in all technicality you don't really install "linux", you install a GNU/Linux system as linux is only a kernel, and the rest of the system is GNU software.
never a good idea because security related issues are going to always be a problem
umm you do realize how much a of blatent lie this is right? , even when your running the "other OS" the hyper visor still has control of the PS3 its locks the linux kernel out of some areas.the biggest security flaw in the ps3 is IT SENDS YOUR STORE DATA UNENCRYPTED. meaning i can sit outside your house and sniff it from your wifi..also like all other current gen systems they sucked at the most basic encryption stuff, leaving keys readable in ram, not even checking for the signed bits. making a random number generator that always uses 4. anyway Removing the option to install other os is what caused this. the proof is in how long it took to hack the ps3 after linux was blocked. about 6 months , the avg time before linux can be installed on ANY console that don't allow it.
and then the part where you show how dumb you truely are.
in fact linux should be shutdown as well as company because they are a source of a lot of troubles or microsoft should just buy them out.
0. There is NO linux company , Linux like all other GPL stuff is made by people like me.
1. what troubles, the kind of trouble were we provide people with software to run their machines.Free you from the microsoft tax and make you applications way better.
2. Microsoft, they like apple are just a bunch of theives. The biggest difference between Free software and Properitary software is that freesoftware is almost always made by the users that want to use it , while properitary software is mostly just to make money and lock in their customers so they can make more money.
No.. Read my post again.
yes i have read you post again in you post you clearly state that open-source software is the way to go because you will own it. this however is NOT TRUE as you don't have any rights to it by default, since its not coved by the GPL(or a compatible free liscense). the creative commons is a joke when it comes to software, you get the source code but you CAN'T do anything with it. read some different lisences some time and see how the gpl protects user rights(the 4 freedoms) and "open source" does nothing more then give you some source code that you can't really do much with.
i will however not touch how much EVERY system in this generation sucks. and for all the same reasons TODAYS GAMES ARE CRAP. its all cutscenes and high gfx and no fun gameplay.
