Has anyone read more info about this? It sounds interesting and might be the only reason I buy a PS3 (besides FF13 if it really looks like the amazing screenshots).

Anyways it says:

PLAYSTATION®3 allows any desired third-party system software to be installed on it besides its system software provided by Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. Details will be posted on this site soon.

They have the word 'desired' in there so does that mean desiredby sony or the user?

It will be interesting to see that they really mean by open platform.
They did have the Yahroze (spelling?) for the PS1 i think it was.

Sony has the information to install Linux online.
It is fedora core for Power PC.

I think the emulators will be coming out soon. I would think there could even be an original X Box emulator because the PS3 s diffiently powerful enough.

And what about using Wine or Cergora (spelling) to play Windows games?
