    Wonder if anyone at RedHat or Sony "chipped" in for this one :

    This is great though -- not only the glory but the deniros to add that nice, green frosting 8)

    I'll split the 200K with you. Better than nothing......

    hmm Vmware could do it..... hehe, I dont think though that the DRM chip would allow it as of now, however.

    This will most likely stay as an "idependent" project. I don't think Sony would take any part of it since it would lower their PS2/PS2Linux sales vigorously. Red Hat, and other various Linux vendors would probably stray from the idea also, in order to stay away from M$ for various reasons. I really can't think of a company that would do such a thing, unless *snicker* Corel wanted try again. Just a thought. ;D
