    Default Linux PS3

    Looking on Wikipedia I have found that earlier versions of the PS3 are capable of running dual OSs one Linux and the other the regular PS3 OS but does anyone know how this works? And while we are on the topic of PS3 does it have a BIOS and if so how can I access it?

    This subject is what started the "Sony getting their asses handed to them on a platter" debacle last year. They released an update that disabled that feature on all of those older PS3's and pissed off a whole lot of people. Then, some guy published a workaround for that fix and Sony went after him with their legal guns blazing.

    The group, "Anonymous" took over from there,....I'm sure that you read about that.

    Google searching will probably find the info that you're looking for. Discussing it here goes against the rules we have at PureOC.

  3. The following user thanks realneil For this above post:

    Kk thanks just wondering cause the PS3 would be a very cheap alternative to buying a computer being that it has 7 cores at 3.2 Ghz

    When you think about it, Linux runs well on most older hardware. It doesn't require 'wazoo-superfly' equipment to run smoothly.
    That's one of it's draws as I see it.

    It probably would fly @3.2GHz. with 7 cores though.

    I recently tried it (Ubuntu) on my i7-870 system with 16GB of RAM and a 60GB OCZ Agility-2 SATA-II SSD. It was incredibly responsive and did everything at speed.

    Unix based systems are sooo much better than whatever windows is because (Linux): Is free Doesn't inflate Uses processing power much more efficiently I put it on my Dimension 8300 and now its lightning. I use Ubuntu too but I use Narty Narwhal instead. Only problem is that games don't support it. Also it would only be 6 cores because only the PS3 OS can use the seventh for some reason.

    Game support in Linux is spotty at best. They are trying to change this with some successes so far.
    But if I'm gonna game, I'm using my Win-7 64-Bit anyways. It's the best that I have for gaming.
    There are a lot of things that you can do with a system besides gaming. Linux works well for most of them.

    ummm, no

    The Cell is 1 true core, with 6 simpler SPEs which are capable of less complex operations than the main core.

    For what you want to use it for it'll be fine.

    Performance wise i5/i7 beats it... that being said floating point operation is better on the CELL. Great for Folding@home.
