Game Over For Sony and Open Source?

They are not friends of the free software world, but enemies. If they actually cared about Linux they would not be continually keeping us out of the Blu-ray world completely by their insane DRM schemes. The only reason Sony ever cared about putting user-programmable (and somewhat to highly crippled, I might add) parts on their consoles is to get tax benefits in Europe for selling a 'computer' and not a 'gaming device,' of which the European countries did not find to be a convincing line of argument. As for me, I won't be supporting a company whose policies help keep Linux crippled and out of the mainstream.
