LXer: Ps3 available pre-installed with Linux

Published at LXer:

Linux distributor TerraSoft is accepting pre-orders for Sony Playstation3 gaming devices pre-installed with Linux, alongside the PS3's native gaming OS. Additionally, TerraSoft, IBM, RapidMind, and Vivendi game publisher High Moon Studios are offering seminars to help game developers exploit the PS3's Cell architecture.

But from what I've read, installing Linux on the PS3 is just like installing it in a virtual machine like VMWare. Limited access to RAM and gfx chip, and it runs slower than on a desktop PC that is half the price of the PS3. Even with the extra SPE's, the limited amount of RAM (only 192 MB available) will destroy any hopes of using SPE's for a 3D acceleration.
