Yes, that's how it works. You just go to the Sony firmware's menu to create new
partitions and the installation is very intuitive. It's just a matter of
clicking some buttons. Once a few kids will have Linux installed, their
friends will see it and want it as well ("it" as in "PS3 Linux" or just PS3,
in case they haven't got one already).

Mark forget to mention that PS3 also plays Blu-ray, which seems to be the
winning next-def format despite the alleged Microsoft briberies
