Games Good times, good times. Sony received a ton of deserved flak after it announced it would remove the PlayStation 3's "Install other OS" feature, despite advertising the machine with said feature, and despite promising only a few weeks earlier not to remove the feature. iPhone and PS3 hacker George "Geohot" Hotz promised to restore the feature - and less than a week later, he delivers.

My understanding was that it was an emulation; your not seeing the raw cell processor through your OtherOS install. If this is correct then even with the emulation layer in place, the processor ran the guest OS fast enough to make it economical as a clustering node. It's an area of hardware I've only been able to watch second hand though so someone who knows the details could help here.
