Linux "With our operating system, the Playstation could very easily be your home CD player, DVD player, MP3 player and home computer, as well as a great game box," said Terra Soft CEO Kai Staats of the PS3, "This is not an application-limited appliance, this is a full-blown computer. There is no issue of ‘can it do this or that?' It can do everything." More here.

Am I the only one seeing this way?

I think Sony made a great move by allowing YDL on PS3. If nothing else, it's great PR and they don't even have to put their engineers into the project. In addition, any linux user who already wants a new console will lean towards the PS3 just because of that.

But the really great news here is this: a $500 to $600 computer, which you can hookup to your tv. A good 4 years lifespan if not more before the next Playstation, during which millions of PS3 will sell. All with the same hardware, which means any app or game you create on your YDL PS3 will run on anybody else's YDL PS3 with the same performance.

Am I missing something or the PS3 could be the new Amiga?
