    I'm pretty sure that it acts just like a regular Linux Computer! I know that StreamMyGame is making a software for linux where you can stream a PC game from one computer to another! They said that it would even work on the PS3!

    I would go with Ubuntu for the PS3! I have Ubuntu on PC's and it's a really great OS! I've played emulators on it and it works just fine! I haven't however tried it on the PS3, but I'm sure that it will work just fine!

    And yes, you will still be able to get to the XMB! When at a certain screen, you can type in boot-game-os, and that will take you from Linux to the XMB! Then when you power on the system again, it will go to the XMB, and you can go to Linux by going to Other OS in the Settings Menu!

    I was the one that put the tutorial on here for YDL! I switched though over to Ubuntu, because it does support the WiFi on the PS3!
