Just because according to this fake report with doctored screenshots the PS4 OS is allegedly based on a PC operating system does not make the PS4 a normal PC.
Xbox One runs a version of Windows 8. Good luck getting X1 titles to run on normal PCs…
Unified RAM does not magically appear in PCs.
D3D vs OpenGL is an none issue. Since version D3D10 and OpenGl 3.0 /OpenGL ES 2.0 here is no real difference in how you use it. They are both just glorified ways to feed data to the different shaders. There are some "plumbing" issues that one can simply abstract away.
So move along kids the fight is over.
Therefore: No currently available PC with Unified RAM architecture and no credible evidence that PS4 OS is really based on FreeBSD which means that mike4 and Luke_Wolf won't be able to play PS4 games on stupid Ubuntu anytime soon.
that's not about being fanatical. it is about being hard. as long as others are so weak dute to their licensing like freebsd you will NEVER profit in any way of it. you will only see the fruits of projects like linux etc. being used and assimilatend and then closed away, like apple did, now sony did and MS did since the company was founded.
if you allow them to take without givng, people will take without givng anything back.
and you seem to be so foolish that you even lough when being raped.
Now we can see who loves BSDs. And as usually, these are turned out to be proprietary f..ks who are also inclined on DRM restrictions. So you can feel all these BSD "freedoms" on your own butt, after buying locked down device and then ... understanding that it's only Sony who haves freedom. Freedom to deny you your freedoms to change code on your device, freedom to forbid you to launch your own code, etc. Ha-ha. So unless you're Sony you're free to give up your freedoms and just obey what Sony tells. That's how BSD "freedom" works: couple of strongest corporations are perfectly free to f...k you up and apply whatever kind of dictatorship they want. You're free to obey or GTFO. Really cool choice.
Ah, wait. There is free version of BSDs, right? Here we can see how this approach performs: while BSD guys are struggling with a lack of GPU drivers, being mostly unusable for gaming/desktop, some proprietary corps are already using their OS for gaming. The problem? Ha-ha, Sony haven't shared their achievements with upstream project. So unless you're Sony (or equally huge monster), you can't make BSDs to run games for you. Most ironically it looks like if AMD is about to write custom closed-source driver for Sony's BSD flavor. But it looks like if BSD f..ks would still lack AMD GPU drivers in FreeBSD itself. It's really cool to see how BSD nuts are getting their views of freedom tested on their own butts. To no surprise, most BSD "fans" are using win or mac os as desktop. Which is another indication of project's EPIC FAIL.
So if someone wants to be treated like third-rate crap, they're welcome to use FreeBSD. If someone wants quality product capable of running games, it turns out they have to give up all BSD freedoms in favor of Sony corp freedoms. As for me, such community <-> corps interaction model really suxx. And that's why BSDs are losing to penguins.

That the Linux version runs faster than the Windows version (270.6) seems a little counter-intuitive, given the greater amount of time we have spent on the Windows version.
