They *just* released the "Broadband" adapter in the US, and currently you
can only get it direct from Sega. Retailers are supposed to be able to
start selling it in March.

Well.... When you've got VGA, Keyboard, and Mouse, it just screams to run
X-Windows. Of course I'll admit that most of us probably don't have any of
those for their Dreamcast (I know I don't).

Now how long before someone ports UNIX to the PS2? Anyone know where to
find Hardware info on that sucker? I finally got to see one today and it
has a rather interesting looking expansion bay. ISTR hearing something
about a Hard Disk for it. Plus it has two USB, and I think one Firewire
port. After seeing one I'm more curious about the hardware than I had been.
