If Sony is capable of again selling tens of millions of (expensive) game consoles there will be an interesting new dimension to the 'war for the living room' and the OS battle between Windows and Linux. Terra Soft Solutions just announced there will be Linux on the PS3. Essentially turning the PS3 into a complete PC. And I just ordered a Wii because it has a browser that supports Flash...;-)
"The distribution will also have full package support, allowing for expansion of the installed software. It will also come with OpenOffice and Firefox preinstalled, among others. This is Sony’s killer app essentially if it’s done right. A full fledged operating system on the PS3 allows near limitless expansion. This changes everything, what do you think?"
