Windows or OS X on the PS4?

The PS3 has the ability to install a Linux OS on its HDD, turning it into a home computer. This offers great flexibility to the system, which some love and others don't care for. We here at PS4Talk see this as a possible step towards one of the more popular OS's being available on the PS4, that the regular consumer will care to use. Linux is a massively popular OS, but ask the general person what is is and they just shrug their shoulders and think you're an uber geek.

Of course, this is purely pipe dreams and speculation, but thought arousing non-the-less. What are your thoughts regarding the matter of 3rd party OS's on the PS4? Perhaps even the rumoured Google OS will make a show on the PS4.

The story is too old to be commented.

Ha... I'd say there's more chance of that than either of the other two. But realistically, they'd stick to Linux which aint bad for us, it's free.

I doubt they'll have any OS, they'll just let the consumer choose, like they did with PS3, and allowed any Linux OS be installed should they choose.

yup, unless some kind of alliance between company's is struck thats likely to happen as it has with PS3.

Running an alternative OS is not for the general user. It's an ADVANCED feature, it runs Linux because it's open source and some versions are designed with PS3 as a consideration now.

But having an OS on a Sony console is pure awesome.
