5762977 story Game Over For Sony and Open Source? 364 Posted by Soulskill on Wednesday September 02, 2009 @12:30PM from the forsaken-beards dept. Glyn Moody writes "Sony has never been much of a friend to hackers, and its infamous rootkit showed what it thought of users. But by omitting the option to install GNU/Linux on its new PS3, it has removed the final reason for the open source world to care about Sony. Unless, of course, you find Google's new distribution alliance with Sony to pre-install Chrome on its PCs exciting in some way."
