It seems Sony will be putting an end to linux support in 3.0, but like previous SKU's they may still support it on the fat console. I know this has made a lot of linux users angry, and dev's. Hopefully they will still support it like they still support SACD on older models, and PS2 emulation etc on EU 60gb and accelerated graphics will only improve. Guess its just the Slim that will be hacked lol.
This is a great news, but i'd like to point out that accelerated graphics is not only about number crunching. Even more important is memory bandwidth, and without DMA access to video memory there would be no change of high performance video decoding or graphics rendering
