    looks like we might, MIGHT get other OS again. if i remember correctly PS4 has 8GB ram so it will be able to run most OSes without problem.

    Most contemporary development kits have two OS'es on-board - one is a coding environment, the other is for testing. ;)

    Most dev kits aren't using a pretty much vanilla version of GRUB though. It seems technologically easy enough to add multiboot with a different OS, but whether they'll actually do it is an entirely different story.

    More interestingly, the PSVita is also running a FreeBSD-based OS. ;)

    Where on Earth does it suggest that? Are you assuming this just because the OS is based on Linux and they are showing the boot loader screen?

    Indeed. To be fair, both systems have their roots in UNIX. :P
