It's a valid question.

Putting a web server on your Ps3 accomplishes, what, exactly? It's not going to do more than your home PC can do. There are cheaper devices you can get to perform the same task just as well (in fact, the PS3 is hardly optimized to handle "real" network traffic a server should handle, since it's designed as a network client).
So what compelling reason do you have for turning the PS3 into a rather poor dedicated Web Server?
