Games Yellow Dog Linux 5 has been announced. Surprisingly, it will first be released for Sony's Playstation 3, and then later for PPC Macs. Yellow Dog Linux 5 for the Playstation 3 will use E17 as its desktop environment (YDL's page on E17), which will be a boost to E17's adoption rate. Sony had mentioned the PS3 would include Linux in some capacity, but it has been unclear how Linux would fit into the rest of the system.

It's not clear if this means the PS3 will come standard with yellow Dog installed or not. If its preloaded that would be huge, but if it's just an add-on that would install after buying the system, and not really officially supported by Sony, then it's not really that big of a deal

Exactly. And if the PS3 includes some other distro preloaded, then no one will care about Yellow Dog.
