If you want to play around with the ps2 hardware it seems worth it. If you just want to play around with linux its probably not.

Um, not everything for linux is free. Just because linux itself is free doesn''t make everything for it free.

That''s like saying that because Windows is not free, that you have to pay for everything for it. But in fact, there are plenty of good free programs for Windows, too.

the linux kernel is free. the Sony HDD has security features w/ the linux kernel checks for. So you have to buy the Sony HDD which comes w/ the linux kit.

is it worth it. dunno. i''m a homebrew ps2 coder.

To the vast majority of mankind, nothing is more agreeable than to escape the need for mental exertion... To most people, nothing is more troublesome than the effort of thinking.

True, but, aside from the hardware mentioned here, the Linux OS and the GCC compiler are free (that''s what this topic is all about, isn''t it?). Sony might not distribute them for free, but I bet you can download them on the web somewhere for free, legally.
