Games The PlayStation 3 Slim already had an ability penalty of -35 Geekiness because of its lack of the "Install Other OS" option, and now the regular PlayStation 3 will follow in its footsteps. A PS3 firmware update, scheduled to land April 1, will disable this option on regular PS3s as well. This, dear readers, is what we in the business call a "testicle move", especially since only a few weeks ago, Sony bold-facedly claimed the feature would not be removed.

Why did it suck? Because Sony restricted its access to memory (only half of the available RAM), the GPU, and many other things.

It could have been a great system if only Sony had not restricted it from the start. And even average joes would have used it if it had been shipped an integrated with the system. People use linux on devices every day and don't even know it.
