Oh, you mean things like making PS3 a PVR, automatically driving a Jeep or calculating gravity waves or streaming games from your PC to PS3 in realtime? ;)

I'm sure this guys are finding lots of cool ways to use PS3, Cell blades and Linux. Not to mention that all standard Linux desktop software works on PS3.

I don't know what exactly did you expect. Linux on PS3 works really nice, works fast enough, installation is easy, and damn thing plays games too. All for 400$.

It is probably not for every PS3 user out there, but there are quite few of us that find it really handy.
