theres a thread on how to get it legally, takes some work but not many people got it yet so... i think they havent yet officially released it.

No. I have no use for it. I already have one computer hooked up to my TV. Its more than enough.

Im pretty sure they did release it, its call YDL (yellow dog linux) and thats the only distro that availiable right now, but i have seen some movies on the internet of people running other distros somehow.

Not many people care about Linux on the PS3. We all have PCs so if we wanted to run a crap OS we could do it on the PC.

I run Yellow Dog Linux on the PS3 and I have to admit that for a "launch" product, it is VERY IMPRESSIVE. I like the fact that I can IM my friends, check my e-mail, type up documents (I'm typing this on my PS3 right now), and browse the web with a real web browser (Mozilla Firefox) on my PS3. As time goes on, they will only add features to this OS. I think it is the perfect compliment to the Sony OS that comes pre-installed on the PS3! If you have a PS3, a 60GB one in particular, I highly recommend you check this out!
