    I'm confused. WTF is special about this? It's apparent he didn't update the firmware so he's simply using OtherOS with a Linux distro to compile or launch a pre-compiled PPC version of XBMC. Multiple comments on the Engadget link states the exact same thing.

    Exactly. He's the first to get a PPC port of XBMC going on a PS3's linux.
