So it looks like the upcoming PlayStation 4’s operating system will be based on BSD (Berkley Software Distribution) Unix operating. This is the same operating system that Apple’s Mac OS X spawned from.
This move should make it a whole lot easier for developers to create games. However this choice (and my current Red Hat course) makes me wonder why they chose BSD Unix over Linux. Their multitasking reason doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me because Linux is more just as capable on the multitasking front.
