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.

You can do a backup and do not lose any saves.
I've recently upgraded my fatty to a new 300GB drive ;)
Installed linux and Ohhh....
So I little dissapointed after the announcement too.
But I understand Sony and reasons because they did it.
