SUBJECT: Good bye world
I started development with PS2 Linux whilst at University - my dissertation was based on a PS2 Linux project. PS2 Linux demos helped get me through the door at Sony Liverpool, to work on F1 for a year, and helped me get a job in the games industry after university and become the lead PS2 programmer for the studio. My first ever program on the PS2 Linux kit was a 'hello world' test, which seems quite fitting as an introduction in to the games industry, so I thought a good bye world post would be fitting to say farewell.
The PS2 Linux community has been excellent over the years, and it has been sad seeing it dry up, bit by bit, and now it appears the end is upon us.
I remember feeling frustrated that I never got involved with the Net Yaroze, and being part of that community, but I am very glad I managed to be part of PS2 Linux.
Many thanks Sarah, you're a star.
