Actually by now you could install pretty much any Linux flavour on the
PS3.  I was talking specifically about what system software they used
to provision the 2000+ PS3s.  You would still need to manually switch
each PS3 to boot from "otheros", but beyond that it would be nice to
have an automated system of provisioning the OS...

Cheers,

Bernard
