Legal And so Sony's crusade against Playstation 3 hacker George "Geohot" Hotz continues. After Sony getting all of Geohot's computers and access to server logs and personal details from many of his websites and social media accounts, Sony has now been given access to Geohot's PayPal account, and all information within it - including of the people he has had financial dealings with.

He was re-enabling features that were ADVERTISED BY SONY when it was released.

You can still use it as a Linux server, you just can't update it. And he was trying to break out of the hypervisor with Linux before OtherOS was disabled.

Why anyone would think it is a good idea to use a Sony console as a server is beyond me. Sure you might get some good cpu power/price initially but the ram is limited and the parts can't be replaced.
