PlayStation 4 Will Be Running Modified FreeBSD

AilleCat Re:A great win for FreeBSD (457 comments)

This is what happens when liberals and dirty hippies put their hands in an OS. They expect everything for free. BSD developers are proud people, and like to see their software used in various situations. Usually, like in the cases of certain vendors (ie. Apple) the code IS contributed back, developers familiar with the code are given jobs, etc. The BSDs have a much more libertarian bent to software, and it shows in the quality. It DOES benefit us. It just doesn't benefit YOU.

Actually, I'm not so sure about that, it actually allows for IBM, etc. to keep more of its own intellectual property, without ever having to release it.

IBM is an IP firm, owning thier own IP is attractive to them.
