    I don't see any obvious clues what it might be in relation to - could it be a new console exploit? I tried ramping up the exposure in Photoshop but that revealed nothing extra and I don't see any giveaways in the small snippet of the taskbar you can see on the computer monitor above.

    Exciting!

    Probably PS4 kernel related.

    I think they probably ported a Linux kernel to some device and might be planning to reveal what it is at any upcoming conferences.

    Well derp. You can't seriously believe I/we don't see this. What do you think the Linux penguin actually tells us about what this is? That's right, absolutely nothing. The question isn't what software or O/S might be possible but the device it's been done on.

    Of course I don't believe it. That's why I wondered why you didn't include Team Fail's remark in the opening post. That's all.

    Obligatory:
    stop being entitled
    be glad they even showed you something
    it's their choice to release or not
    stop whining
    do/make/code it yourself
    what would you do with the exploit?
    releasing it would kill the company
    i bet you would only use it for piracy
