Thank you both for your input on the XMBC idea, and I think we can all agree that XBMC can run on a PS3, but run like windows media classic on a old 286 sx, unless we can use all the cores.
I understood it needed to be ported correctly to use all the cores and the GPu, but just thought, if it runs on a Xbox1 with a 700MHz ish CPU, and only able to access the 1st 64 megs of mem,then even if we could only use one of the cores on the PS3, it will still run better and faster than an Xbox1.
Anyway thanks, I'll give up on the xbmc, and wait to see how Linux pans out, I am interested that no one seems to talk about YDL, seeing it was created for Sony way back then, is there any drivers that would work for the GPu in their distro? because I was on the understanding YDL would run at 1080 and use all the cores, then it must have the right drivers back then, their must be a DEV that can package it up so we can install it.
I was even wondering if it was posable to ftp the files needed for linux to the ps3 the use a eboot to call up the bootloader. Sorry am I dreaming again,
