PS2 Linux

Well it's happened, Sony has announced the release of Linux for Playstation2 kits. It's a pretty darn good deal too, even if you arent a linux fan just to get all the nifty hardware. The number of uses this can provide are almost limitless, and if anyone is gonna come up with some wacky stuff, it's the linux fruits. Here's the list of stuff you get for $199.

-- Internal hard disk drive for PlayStation 2 (HDD) with 40 GB capacity
-- Network Adaptor (Ethernet) (for PlayStation 2) with 100 Base T Ethernet interface
-- USB Keyboard and mouse (for PlayStation 2)
-- Linux Kernel version 2.2.1 (with USB device support)
-- "Linux (for PlayStation 2)" Version 1.0 software distribution on two DVDs
-- gcc 2.95.2 and glibc 2.2.2 with VU assemblers
-- XFree86 3.3.6 with PlayStation 2 GS support
-- Computer monitor adaptor (for PlayStation 2) (with audio connectors)

Should be interesting to see if any guys manage to get some 3D games up and running on this thing.
