This sucks... it should run on a bigger OS like OS X or Windows XP



Why,should it run OS X or Windows XP? if Sony did make it that way they,would have to pay out royalties to Apple or Microsoft, that would be,terrible considering sSony is competing with Microsoft. Not to metion,have you ever heard of a virus that targets linux. No I bet you haven't,but look at all the viruses that target Windows, now why would you want,that on your PS3?

Linux is a good choice.  Majority of people don't use Linux because almost all computers came with Windows and OS X pre-installed.  But if we can run Linux on the PS3, PS3 owners will have a chance to be familiarized with Linux.  Eventurally more people will switch from Windows and OS X to Linux.

Id be really happy if PS3 ends up running a version of Mac OS X. I have never had a virus on any of the macs Ive owned over the last 15 years because mac OS is much more stable than windblows.

Yes, but only if you have a modded Xbox.

So whats with all the smoke blowing then? It doesn't take very much of a system to run linux yet he has to install it to prove it's a supercomputer. I like the launch missles story better,

I agree..talk about delusions of grandeur. I think I recall him,saying that with PS2 and HDD, we would be editing videos. Now he is,talking about HD video editing. Who is going to buy a PS3 and HDD to,edit videos? What is he smoking?!?

And terrorists used PS2s to launch guided missiles. Don't believe the hype. PS3 will be a console, just like PS2...

There will never be a,SUPERCOMPUTER on the consumer electrionic market! Never! GOVERNMENTS,& RESEARCH FALITIES are the only  place's with super computers,like NASA for example!  All the Ps3 is more powerfull is our 32,bit home PC's right now but when windows longhorn comes out(64 bit) the,PS3 will begin to be technically outdated! so for about the next 2,years Sony will legally be able to claim its a supercomputer!
