Linux "With our operating system, the Playstation could very easily be your home CD player, DVD player, MP3 player and home computer, as well as a great game box," said Terra Soft CEO Kai Staats of the PS3, "This is not an application-limited appliance, this is a full-blown computer. There is no issue of ‘can it do this or that?' It can do everything." More here.

Keyboard and Mouse

If Yellow Dog will be on retail shelves along with the PS3 at several locations I hope that Terra Soft will considered offering two versions available for purchase.

One version could come as a standard box set edition with DVDs and manual, and a second retail offering that will bundled with a wireless keyboard and mouse.

People may be more inclined to purchase YD if it comes with a keyboard and mouse. The end user would also know that they would be getting something physically tangible because of the bundled keyboard and mouse.

And its may also be more convenient for the end user since they would not have to think about getting additional hardware to have full access to Yellow Dogs features.

They would probably be able to get a good quantity discount from the likes of belkin, viewsonic, logitech etc.. and offer a decent quality keyboard and mouse set.

Thanks. I emailed it to their suggestion box when I was thinking about it earlier.

The PS3 has been sounding very interesting in the news I am really hoping to read some early detailed reviews of its abilities and YD on it when its launched on the market. Hope the price isnt overly insane.
