Gaming on Linux
Hopefully everyone had a pleasant holiday season. Only weeks into the new year and already some interesting gaming news has happened.
Noted hacker group fail0verflow has hacked the PlayStation 4, running a custom Linux port on the system. Linux has been run on prior Playstation systems, usually via USB boot, but no one expected it to happen on this system so quickly, with rough estimates of a hack being months, maybe years, down the line.
