"There has been rumor that Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.(SCEI) has successfully ported the Linux kernel and supporting GNU environment to their PlayStation2 platform.Recently, these rumors have been confirmed from sources close to the company. Furthermore, it has come to our knowledge that conservative fractions in the company are hindering the Public Release of the port, fearing revealation of their trade secrets and not seeing the advantage for SCEI releasing the software. Nevertheless, many people inside SCEI would like to see the port made public and need the community's assistance. Therefore we are running a petition in order to demonstrate the community's interest for Linux on the PlayStation2."
