Quick question, what is there to do with Linux on the PS3? I just heard it was pretty good, but they didn't tell me why. I just like the option of being able, unless it's something I won't do/use.

It's linux. The full desktop OS, so you could do anything really, as long as whatever programs you run have PPC support.

Huh... I guess it's not that good for me then since it will be sharing the same monitor as my computer.
But I will still find a fat.
Doesn't the Gamestop 2 year warranty only works for 1 console? Like if I exchanged the console once, my warranty is over.

I saw someone with OS X leopard on it somewhere on the internet and it worked awesome as well.

If you could get that running, you'd have a much more usable platform.
