Linux was able to (for a short time) be installed on Sony PlayStation 3 consoles with the 'otherOS' feature but Sony eventually killed it. the later patches removed the functionality and it was never available period on the slims. from what i read however, it was super slow on the thing. i can only imagine what a full Linux distro would do on a phone, given that the PS3 had a very well-spec processor.

still running VectorLinux 6.x on an old laptop i only wish there was a way to make two games that require me to force myself to run Windows to play work in Linux. i've tried everything but Wine just crashes. the games are Star Trek Online and Microsoft Flight Simulator X. they just do not work in Linux
