Trying? Its been hacked, not completely blown open but hacked. Sony thought that by locking the system down they could prevent piracy, no 3d hardware support, no games. With full system resources Linux would probably run quite well, Sony just came along and killed the party right as it was getting interesting. I'll be keeping my linux support and if I cant run store bought copies of new releases on my PS3 I bet the pirated versions will run fine. Linux runs fine on the PS3 hardware as is and Ubuntu runs great on mine, everyone who complains about poor performance needs to finish setting it up. Linux is all about being able to tailor it to fit your situation. The PS3 number cruncher clusters are an excellent example of this, if only they could use the RSX processor too.
