    It basically gives your PS3 all the capabilities of a PC, basically what it can do isn't limited by the OS like with the PS3's normal firmware. Plus you can run and install programs that you otherwise couldn't.

    Of course, like I said it basically turns the PS3 into a PC.

    Well it all depends on your setup, whether or not you have a HDTV, already have easy access to a computer, or simply your willingness to learn how Linux works.

    Linux is fairly simple depending on what model/version of it that you choose of course, and its fun to learn a new OS and possibly useful down the road as well. Since your PC is right around the PS3 you might not get a huge amount of use out of it though.
