I wonder what improvements will there be. Hopefully it will now be usable.

are you serious?? are you just a troll or are you having problems using it?? i use my linux all the time, what's wrong with it??

coolfool5976d ago

I can't that most people who do choose to install this will only install Linux "because they can" and not because they actually intend to use it for anything.

answering your question of why: www.streammygame.com .. well at least i install it for that one, also super fast hacking :D

...if you don't have a home PC.

However, we can get most of the basic services we want online through the PS3 browser - googledocs, gmail/yahoo/hotmail, and little time-killing flash games - so if that's all you want it for, you don't need Linux. If you want more control over your documents, the ability to compile code, and the chance to learn a pretty cool operating system, you should try it out.

wait, can you used the Sixaxis as the controler? Could you do that before?

I would still like to see a complete Ubuntu distro for the PS3, though. But the CellSDK3 is a strong argument. No need to get that installed on ubuntu (well, I've never tried). Sixaxis is interesting, too. I hope they mean thru BluTooth, not USB, though. I still don't like their desktop, and Gnome is still a pain. I am wondering if its possible to downscale all services and really run a minimum desktop to use the 256MB efficiently (there's a link somewhere to reduce the amount of swapping on the PS3, but haven't tried that yet, either). And I am wondering, if they will ever implement PetitBoot into any distro (better yet, Sony should but this into their firmware - an optional visual bootmanager).
