Why Sony, Why? No linux on the PS3?

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.
