Gaming is one of the niches often touted as a show-stopper for GNU/Linux. I ignored gaming mostly because I am too old to be interested but others do not. Now Sony is bringing PlayStation content to Android/Linux. Since as many ARMed thingies will be produced as conventional PCs in 2011, this is potentially a huge entrance into gaming on Linux. It could eventually assist GNU/Linux on x86 if Sony ports stuff to GNU/Linux more generally. It’s definitely a major shift for SONY.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
