Don't kill your television--study it!

I just learned about a link that's apparently been live for a while, but it's new to me: Following that link one level to Television you'll see that SONY has been embedding GPL software into their state-of-the-art televisions since 2003.


Maybe it is a good time after all to think about getting a new TV...


When I bought a Sony HDTV recently, I was rather amused at finding copies of the multiple FOSS licenses in the back of the user manual.

Sounds interesting, i wonder what these bits of software within the TV actually do. Since most TV's do the same as they have for many years... ~ Mike
