Emulation Explosion On the PS3 Via Linux 

,----[ Quote ]
| The PlayStation 3 has recently seen an explosion of releases of emulators and 
| games for the Yellow Dog Linux distro for PS3; once you have installed Yellow 
| Dog Linux you then have the ability to try out MAME, SNES, Amiga, Dos, 
| Commodore and Atari emulators (that's the tip of the iceberg) and such games 
| as Quake 2, Duke Nukem 3D, Hexen 2 and Alephone. Time to start installing 
| Linux on your PS3?     



More than a toy

| The Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) runs Linux®, but getting it to run well requires
| some tweaking. In this article, first in a series, Peter Seebach introduces
| the features and benefits of PS3 Linux, and explains some of the issues that
| might benefit from a bit of tweaking.


How to Turn Your PlayStation 3 Into a Linux PC (and Win Our Mod)

,----[ Quote ]
| The Cell processor inside Sony's PlayStation 3 is a powerhouse that lets the
| gaming console render highly detailed graphics at blistering speed. That same
| chip gives the PS3 all the processing muscle it needs to become a fully
| functional computer. When we first heard this was possible, we were sure the
| procedure had to be illegal, or that it would at least void the warranty. But
| as it turns out, this is that rarest of finds in consumer electronics: a
| perfectly legal, manufacturer-supported hack that adds significant
| functionality. With a little bit of effort and expense, we turned a PS3 into
| a Linux computer—without losing any of the machine's native gaming goodness.
| And we'd like one of our readers to win it.

| The free version of the software will allow you to stream at 640x480, which
| is pretty crap, but if you’re willing to pay up, you can go all the way to
| 3200x2400 - although the system requirements for that are should be pretty
| high, like an octoSLI or sumthin'.



PS3 + Linux + Firefox = Office 2.0 computing

| Sony and a technology site are using a conference to show off a confluence of
| next-generation, monopoly-bypassing technology: a Sony Playstation 3

| Web-based "Office 2.0" applications.  
| IT|Redux, a site run by blogger and tech adviser Ismael Ghalimi, is showing
| off the system at the Office 2.0 Conference in San Francisco. IT|Redux is the

| Running linux on a playstation 3 is not a hack, it doesn’t require any
| hardware modification, won’t disable any feature on your Playstation 3 and is  
| not difficult to do.

| present in the XMB ( Cross-mediabar, the UI of the Playstation 3).
