On youtube mopx0 has posted a video of Windows Vista installed on the PS3, the whole process takes a day to install and vista is as slow as hell, but heres the video for those interested. There is a tutorial available too.
thats why. if you dont like it dont say anything
yeah seems like a waste of time and energy
"1 - Why ?" why not?
To prove that it's possible, even if it's not practical.
it was already know it was possible lol, i mean the they have installed XP on it before, and its just a VM not something that special.. its pointless tbh..
Vista is a ramvampire, so i dont think it´s really optimal on the ps3... Or pc ;-)
On top of that it's emulated. I'm actually shocked it even tries.
because why you would want to slow it down just to prove that it can be done is a bit stupid but hey too each his own
So does this mean on the next update,ps3's will crash? Would it do any harm. I've heard of guys doing some crazy things with their systems. I sometimes wonder if this is why people complain about crashes after update. Just wondering.
Please are doing some very interesting things with their PS3...That may contribute to the issues some are having with the firmware updates....
its just installing Vista, like they way you can install linux on the ps3, its not hack, just a bit of trickery, but does not effect the ps3 firmware in anyway
Is there a reason or advantage to changing the OS on the ps3? I've had my system for 6 months, so i haven't experimented yet.
It's just something you could for fun. No real advantage to installing Linux on the PS3. It would be much better to install it on a regular PC, and it would run better too.
Thanks for the info, its something i wouldn't do for fun. I really like the ps3 format. (XMB)..... Peace. Game On..
don't really know what you're talking about but i dont really feel like explaining it
Most important thing about LINUX on a PS3? ALL THE EMULATORS MWAHAHAHA
HAHAHAHA Face it droids, PS3 is not so powerful after the BS we heard about it.
x86-based Operating System running on a PowerPC-based CPU? Not to mention that Vista requires 2 GB of ram to run properly? Come on, haha.
You don't say that same sh!t when your spewing spin stink about how powerfull the PS3 is in every other catigory and news/rumor post DJ? Why are you spinning away from this now? I would bet any amount of money if I searched hard enough, I could find a comment somewhere on this site saying that you think the PS3 could run Vista. You would be an alright guy DJ if your lies and BS didn't always catch up to you.
Actully for you people who know NOTHING. Its being emulated, this means that using Linux to run windows is likely to be as slow on a normal computer doing the same process also. Vista Sux ass anyway, XP is better. XP is the best thing to come from Microsoft. Some might say the only thing ;]
Lol 24 minutes just for start up, damn thats a long time haha. I have Vista 64 bit on my computer, I like it alot actually its a good OS but still I really don't see the point of Linux, XP or Vista on a PS3, it runs so slow and its probably easier to put it on the PC.
will cause a PROD version for PS3 hehe. Vista is a terible OS. Office 2007 is great though.
why the fck wud u want crap like vista on the ps3. If it was MAC OSX id b jumping up n down but vista!! wtf!!!
huh playboy ?
The PS3 is the one being touted as being able to handle operating systems.
Now all that is left is to run the S/390 OS on the PS3. And Solaris. And PalmOS. And Windows CE. And AmigaOS. And BeOS. And OS/2. and...
Pentium 3! what an insult to cell!. And yeah that is awesome.
I thought the Cell is this all powerfull chip?
Cell is a powerful chip, thats why its running linux, and windows at the same time. And with only 512 Ram =] Hush ya batty please m8 [=
Linux would be the ideal choice, and the cell would be only using one of its cores technically. Toshiba is researching into a Cell powered TV which I believe is already out and has a new computer that has a cell as some kind of graphical assistance chip. But their getting there. If Sony did what they said and had the extra 2 years or however to develop the cell GPU which I believe is still in development (I hope to god it is) what are current CPU's running at these days? 750 on my 9800 GTX I have 2 so 1500, yeah imagine 3.2GHz with 8 cores... You'd be running Crysis at 999FPS, this is what Sony originally had in mind
take it easy dude, you're asking way too much to your 12 neurons! you don't wanna risk overheating or something... you gotta take it slow... just go play halo and give it another try in say... 2000 years. at this time, who knows... you might begin to understand a couple beginner's concepts like hardware acceleration and software emulation. wow, I'm just realizing... we could even have some kinda conversation! vista on ps3 is the dumbest idea I've ever heard it's like trying to win the tour de france with a Hummer
Hmmm... lots of spin for somthing that "shouldn't" need spinning...:)
This says alot about the so called power of the Cell, a system with a Dual Core and enough memory can run Vista. When you take in account the new update to Vista that lets it run more smoothly on older systems, makes me laugh even harder.
dude did you even think before posting??? this OS was in no way written to even support any other type of CPU other than the traditional architecture ones like pentium or dual cores the cell has a way different architecture and as a matter of fact just by running this OS with only 256Mb for the CPU is already an accomplishment
jason your trolling is failing.
dude_uk is correct, the method that lets you install linux (vista etc), does not give you full access to the GPU, Cells etc.
poor thing ; ;
You morons do know emulation is really slow? Its running on Xbuntu and is being emulated from qemu. This isn't new. Emulation on the ps3 has been going on since the ps3 was released. All u need to do is install a linux based os than just get some emulator. This has nothing to do with power. This is emulated, its slow really slow. Emulating and os on another OS is just Sh!t. It has nothing to do with power. That Jason 360 is having a good time. Dude, you really suck. You don't know anything about anything. You just start to spam anything PS3 related. Go Fuk your 360s air vents.
Vista can bog down PC's with 2gb and the ps3 is running 256k ram banks.
gears of war on the ps3.
put a copy of windows XP on there and run halo then i'll be impressed :) nice job though
WOW!!!!!!!!!!! Vista on the PS3! not bad dude...not bad right now its too slow but atleast he did it R.E.S.P.E.C.T!!! BY THE WAY: I ONLY WATCHED THE FULL VIDEO BECAUSE OF THE MUSIC!!!!!!! (GREAT BAND, GREAT SONG) SEETHER FTW!!! YEEEEAAAAAHHHHH :D (sorry but i couldnt resist)
........................... For those who have have 250gb or 320gb HDD's (like me), It's hardly not useful. I use it download all types of stuff overnight. If you download anime/movie/music then Linux on PS3 is you.
microsoft wants to offer them garbage
