PS3 to run Windows XP Home, Apple Tiger, Linux.

5 replies 13 views Edited Jun 11, 2005
"We're positioning the PS3 as a supercomputer", he says, "But people won't recognize it as a computer unless we call it a computer, so we're going to run an OS on it. In fact, the Cell can run multiple OSes. In order to run the OSes, we need a hard disk. So in order to declare that the PS3 is a computer, I think we'll have preinstalled with Linux as a bonus. ,

Kutaragi said the PS3 will run operating systems as applications. "The kernel will be running on the Cell, and multiple OSes will be running on top of that as applications. Of course, the PS3 can run Linux. If Linux can run, so can Lindows. Other PC Operating Systems can run too, such as Windows and (Mac OS) Tiger, if the publishers want to do so. Maybe a new OS might come out," he adds.

yeah but does that mean he is in talks with one of those companies , or is he giving then an invite to do something with the sony company? and to add microwsofts windows , would you say that he is being a smart azz or does he want to work with them on this project?

,

could you see that sony and microwsoft working together on something for the ps3 .. would benifit both companies .. sony would get the os from a great company and make money from microwsoft for the right to have the program on the ps3 , and microwsoft would make money from a % of the sales of the ps3 ... or something like that ...
