    A former Sony employee who created Linux for the PS2 is looking for signatures for his petition for the release of PS2 Linux Packages and Website Archives by Sony! When we first reported this, evilgeek23 had already been petitioning for a month. Within ten days of being on our front page, he received more than double the signatures he'd already had. With our support, he can continue to keep that number rising, and continue to make a difference.

    I'm probably going to get a lot of flak for this, but why is it necessary to get linux to run on every single computing device known to mankind?

    I swear, there is probably some nerd in Timbuktu who's trying to hack his Tracfone so he can run linux on it. [​IMG]
    The near religious devotion some people have towards linux is astounding and a little scary. [​IMG]

    BTW I signed the petition out of fear for my life. [​IMG]

    That's...kind of what I was thinking. Combined with Snailface's post. Seriously, how many people would even use it?

    Linux PS2 has already happened, but it required certain hardware. I assume the release of the source is so it can be modified to run on other stuff.
