Heh, Sony just lost my potential business for the PS3 (as nice as GT5 was looking). They've removed the ability to run Linux apparently. That's the only reason I was willing to get a PS3 (not the motivator, but the enabling factor).
I'm right there with the plantif mentioned HERE. I've been mulling over the idea of purchasing a PS3 for ages despite being a fan of the 360, and benig heavily invested in it (and it's online community) because Gran Turismo 5 has features I can't find on the 360, the PS3 would cover my BlueRay disc player needs, AND because I could run linux (Android, LMCE, etc) on it. That final benfit was the point that let me justify the others. Now I don't think I can bring myself to do spend that money.
