    Have you watched part 2 of this video? I used psUbuntu, which is built for the PS3′s PPC Cell CPU.

    Good luck

    Tried EDUBUNTU 7.04 A RETAIIL DISK and it is also NOT APPLICABLE

    I can show you how to get ANY “code based” item like xbox 360 live points, gold cards, itunes, and wii points emailed to you. It even works for ebay/amazon gift certificates. All you need is an e-mail. Go here to learn how:


    I promise this is no scam. It will only take a minute of your time. If you don’t believe me there’s proof too.

    Doesn’t Playstation already has the Video media center already…its almost the same as the xbox media center (pay or rent movies). I can understand Backing up dvd…and possibly Blu-rays…but xbox…COME ON. Buy xbox then…help the economy. lol

    hi, I was reading about cell processors, they work in different ways than an common pc for home or even to work… the fact is: the 8 cores does differents task at differents speeds,. the combination of those speeds makes a promedium speed of 3.2ghz, even the cell processor can work at lower speeds. this technology is not new, its similar to the old motorola`s PPC for apple mac, powerPC`s, G3, G4, G5. the difference is the bus inside the processor and the newest tecnologys to assamble it.

    Playstation 3 is a computer

  17. xXxlllManHacklllxXx Says:

    because today’s pc’s don’t have such a powerfull cpu as the ps3 has. 9corees at 3.2ghz and for 2 cpu cycle a pc needs the cell needs one! It’s uncomparable but the cell is a monster!

    You know you can get one of these for free? You’ll need to sign up for a free trial (I suggest netflix) and then get some other people to do it too, I’ve already gotten an xbox 360 from one of these before. Here’s my referral link (remove the spaces!!) ht tp:/ /ps3s. free pay . co m/? r=46451439

    Why would someone want to install an OS on a console, why not simply buy and build an awesome computer?
