PS3 Linux links –
Well, just to get things rolling in the PS3 Linux forum, here's a small collection of useful/informative links for prospective users and developers (mostly developers at the moment):
Open Platform for Playstation 3 - The catalyst for all alternative system software on PS3. The Other OS bootloader and its installation instructions can be found here.
PS3 Linux Add-On Discs (qj.net mirror) - The Linux PS3 Add-On discs (source and binary; qj.net link is just the binary disc). This contains all of the various kernel patches, tools, and documentation made available by Sony for adapting Linux distributions. Please let me know of any other good mirrors and I'll add them.
Power Developer PS3 - Provides kernel patches, documentation, and Cell programming examples downloadable separately.
Barcelona Supercomputer Center's "Linux on Cell" site - Provides the Cell SDK.
IBM Cell SDK - Another source and more documentation for the Cell SDK.
PowerPC-enabled Linux distributions
The following popular Linux distributions have support for PowerPC targets and may be adapted to run on PS3 by those with strong knowledge of Linux systems:

i'm very interested in the power of the ps3. althoug the ps3 has a more powerfull processor than the xbox 360, the games on the xbox 360 look better. perhaps they will improve in the future but there is a thing that i'm very interested in:
could please the guys, that possess a ps3 and can run the linux on it, check this tool:
set the tool to <<<< 1M >>>>
it will calculate the superpi with 1 Mio decimal places of PI
3000+ xp 1 minute
3700+ 47 seconds
Xeon 3,6 ghz 50 seconds
conroe 6600 24 seconds
i'm very anxious to experiance how long the ps3 needs to calculate the super pi with 1 Mio deciamal places
if u know, ps3 have 7 processors on it.

hxxp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FLOPS to see how powerful these consoles are
both of them are considered supercomputers according to wikipedia
the CPU of PC's are only measured as GFLOPS so expect these consoles are faster than high end PC
and also i think ps3 could beat intel quad core2 duo
Wow maybe the european version will have 802.11n ?
Did anyone install MacOS X on this thing yet?
