Fedora Core Early on, it was a bit of a challenge to get Linux natively installed on the PS3. Time has passed, and a great deal has changed. Fedora 7 installs on the PS3 out of the box, with the most challenging installation steps eliminated. This article introduces the basic configuration knobs and widgets specific to the PS3 running Linux, shows you how to use them effectively, and suggests the kind of trickery that gets improved performance.

FFTW supports the SPEs in the Cell processor.

This is interesting as FFTW is a library extensively used on Linux for audio processing and analysis.
I'd like to know how many more voices a soft synth like Zynaddsubfx would get, or how long a convolution reverb would be possible. As far as I know, it would not require any changes to the audio software to take advantage of FFTW compiled for Cell.
