    I gave this a try the other day, it works really well for desktop use.

    Gaming wise 3D acceleration works, however the FPS will be low in most games, unless it's something really old like Half-Life.

    I had no problem playing 1080p video on Kodi over my home network however. Encoding video with Hand Break on the PS4 was about on par with my PC's Core i5 2500k processor.

    Keyboard and Mouse work fine, the PS4 controller doesn't work, however that's because Bluetooth is not working yet.

    I've not tried it, however I imagine a wired Xbox 360 / Xbox One controller would as Fedora has drivers for them: https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/xboxdrv

    Networking wise Gigabit Ethernet works, 10/100 Ethernet or Wireless don't currently work.

    The big one is sound over HDMI doesn't work yet, once that's working you could happily enjoy using Linux on the PS4. You could connect a USB soundcard to have working sound as a temp workaround however, same for Bluetooth.
