There is no issue of ‘can it do this or that?' It can do everything." More here.

How is that striking? Linux poses no threat to Sonys busyness, since they don't sell an Proprietary Operating System.

You're saying that, but if all the PS3 get bought up by Linux enthusiasts who will only be playing emulated games and doing desktop-work, and they're not buying any PS3 games, Sony will go under. They're heavily subsidising the PS3 in the hopes enough games will be sold.
