Games As everybody had been more or less anticipating for months now, Sony has released the Playstation 3 Slim, a much smaller, lighter, and more energy-efficient variant of the regular Playstation 3. There's good news for people who held out on the PS3 because it was too expensive, and there's bad news for those of us who liked the idea of running Linux on the PS3.

No OSes?

What is there to say that no other operating system can be installed? I use OpenBSD on all my computers, I do not care about Linux at all because of it's bad engineering practices of the kernel. But what has been done with the new slim PS3 to say that it's possible for me to use OpenBSD on there, did they tinker with the IRQ number configuration to block OS installs or something?

You actually have no idea what you're talking about, do you? *HA*HA*HA* "Bad engineering practices in the kernel" *HA*HA*HA* Boy, it seems nobody else has noticed. "tinker with the IRQ number configuration to block OS installs" *HA*HA*HA* I think they multiplexed the matrix vectors of the flooze controller, but that can be undone by injecting an encrypted protoframe in the GPU flow.

Most of us(even the crackers) noticed that last week when news got out that a huge hole that had been open for 8 years was finally closed. ;)

Seriously though, you should check your computer's capacitor, as it might have had a neutrino reflux in its core positronic memory that kept you from downloading that byte of data from the World Wide Web into your CPU. This is a known issue in linux-3.11.1.4 kernels but OpenBSD is unaffected.
