    I heard from someone that I know that their friend put Mac OX X on their PS3. I that possible? He said his friend just used the "other OS" installer. Is it really that obvious that all you do is put the OS installer disk in and launch the os installer thing?

    I wouldnt see why it wouldnt work, MAc OX is based on Unix, both Linux and Unix use alot of the same kernal.. I was just reading somewhere about mac and linux being very simular and some are putting both OS on thier Macs.

    The only OS's that will run on the PS3 have to be built for the PPC architecture. Which means no Windows(not really a bad thing). The OtherOS installer also requires a bootloader (otheros.bld) for the specific OS you want to install, so as said previously, it is not possible till someone develops a bootloader for the PS3 and OSX.
