Default PS3 running Linux, what's the story here?

So I been wondering what would be the main benefit of putting Linux on my Playstation 3...anyone done it? What all can you do with it and is it worth experimenting with it?

I've done it. I don't believe there is any advantage for the average person. Its useful if you want a cheap way to fiddle around with programing the Cell. Although RSX access is blocked so you can't do much graphically.

Emulators, Wii isn't the only one that can do retro gaming. Also you want to use real browser and play that non-mpeg file.
