    The real question is, will this be better than running Linux from Other OS? If it can't have access to the things that Other OS couldn't touch and/or exceed the 10 GB partition limit, then it is of no use to me.

    It is running in GameOS mode so it has access to everything GameOS has access to, in theory.

    Other OS could exceed 10GB but you had to limit the PS3's Game OS partition or whatever. I'm sure that it's possible to set custom partitions though. This does have access to everything the Game OS has access to. So we get access to the 7th SPE and full access to the RSX. However, I believe people need to understand how the RSX works before anyone can make use of it, from what I've read.

    I believe all this info can be found in Marcan's posts if you bother to read it.

    Why? The use is not terribly different from that in the SDK.

    I don't know...I haven't actually read most developments on the PS3 in detail, and I'm just going from that one statement from Marcan's post. I assumed it was talking about coding and building drivers in Linux to make use of the RSX, which I don't think most people did as RSX access was blocked early on.
