GP2X Adds Linux Flavor to Game Console Mix

Filed under
Gaming

Just what my life and wife need -- another gadget for me to play games/watch videos/listen to music/view photos on.

There's something different about the GP2X, though: It runs on a Linux operating system and, more importantly, is a true open source gadget.

What that means is, its Korean manufacturers, Gamepark Holdings, have provided the hardware and then left the users to do the rest.

Seriously Capable

They've said: "There's your console, now make it work differently, faster, slower, better, longer -- but don't blame us if you break it."

It's a refreshing attitude in these proprietary days.

The GP2X is a bedroom programmer's dream.

Mine runs on two 275 MHz processors, has 64 MB of RAM, custom graphics and decoding chips.

Full Story.
