    Just thinking now we can install ubuntu and other linux on ps4.........

    Can somebody test to install windows 10 or Mac OSX/Hackintosh with virtualbox/vmware/qemu on ps4 under Ubuntu linux?

    will run slower or faster.

    Not sure since i don't have a 1.76 ps4 but if its possible id like to see it done. Or older OS. I even heard of theories of getting steam to run. Of course its all speculation.

    I think Linux works because it's modified to work with the hardware. Would be harder to do with Windows or MacOS.

    More likely with Windows than macOS... Windows is designed to work on any system that runs it and has drivers while macOS won't even run on all Macs.

    Just to clarify, what OP is saying is to install and configure the virtualbox framework for the linux kernel to handle hardware compatibilities for us, since it already works. What OP does not realize though, is the processor needs to specifically support virtualization for this to work better than 10 fps. Someone correct me, but I'm afraid virtualization is disabled.
