Installing Other OS's Not only that, but the PS3 is to be an Open Platform Which means anyone is free to create and run any third party software on the PS3. (Emulators anyone?) On top of that, any Power-PC compatible OS (Suse, Ubuntu, Gentoo, Fedora and more) can be installed on the PS3's hard drive. That means any Linux software can be used on the PS3, and we all know that Linux's emu scene is nothing short of huge. Personally this is more than I hoped for from the PS3 Linux scene, and I'm sure it will be fantastic news for homebrew developers.
