| Are you still running on a single core Intel with 256 MB of RAM and a nVidia 
| 5200? You may be thinking it's time to upgrade that jalopy setup you have and 
| go to the shiny, candy coated world of Vista. Whoa! Hold yer horses there, 
| cowboy! A better option lies around the corner from a source you may not have 
| expected: Your Playstation. Since late last year, Yellow Dog Linux (Made by 
| Terra Soft Solutions) has been the official secondary operating system for 
| Playstation 3 (GameOS is the default). Other versions of Linux have been 
| confirmed as being compatible, including Ubuntu, Fedoro Core 7, Gentoo, and 
| Debian but, I'm am unaware if they are as easy to install or if they even 
| work as well as Yellow Dog.

| Web-based "Office 2.0" applications.   
| IT|Redux, a site run by blogger and tech adviser Ismael Ghalimi, is showing 
| off the system at the Office 2.0 Conference in San Francisco. IT|Redux is the 
| show organizer.

Ubuntu Linux and Symfony on a PlayStation 3

| Running linux on a playstation 3 is not a hack, it doesn’t require any 
| hardware modification, won’t disable any feature on your Playstation 3 and is  
| not difficult to do. 
| Sony officially support running linux on your ps3 with dedicated tools 
| present in the XMB ( Cross-mediabar, the UI of the Playstation 3).
