Can you get linux on it?!?

EDIT:
oh nice did a little searching. Found you can get linux on it shweeet!
Unlike the psp there is no risk of "bricking" the system. That is a relief!
I may try this when I get home.

Which is freaking awesome! It's not like Sony to allow anything that doesn't have Sony written all over it.

What are you talking about? Like the other guy said unless you are modding the actual Firmware you are not going to brick anything. Press and hold the power button and the default firmware will load.

That should keep you busy for a while. Shoot me a invite when you get you're accout setup.

I have not been on much between school and work but I do get on a few days throughout the week.

I thought about the whole linux thing but I decided their was no real point in doing it. I mainly was going to do it for a friend because he didn't have a home pc. But I never got around to it. Just get the special yellow dog version if you want to try it.

And to the person talking about bricking that's impossible. Even if you did manage to brick it you just have to pull the hard drive and re format it.

Hi,

I would recommend that you give puppy linux a try. I have heard a number of people have been able to run that.

Cheers!
