It may offer a functional distribution of Linux, but the Linux kit for PlayStation 2 is also very much about making PlayStation 2 hardware accessible for learning how to develop games, and in the past year that the Linux kit has been available, we are pleased to say that several universities in the US, Europe, and Australia, and other educational groups have introduced Linux for PlayStation 2 facilities and teaching modules as a part of their degrees and courses.

This area of the site is dedicated to news and information about universities and other groups that we know of that are using the Linux kit for teaching graphics, console game development, and other related material.

You would need a hard drive to install Linux on a PS2, but you can still play games with it after installing Linux.
