Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Anonymous" targeted Sony earlier this year after Sony proceeded
in court against George "GeoHot" Hotz, a programmer who attempted
to enable the PlayStation 3 to run the Linux operating system.
"The ability to run Linux was originally supported by the
PlayStation 3 using an "OtherOS" function built into the console.
In fact, Sony's early marketing for the PlayStation 3 actively
promoted the capability to install and run Linux."
