179w ago - Today PlayStationUniversity.com (linked above) reports that a Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Slide Presentation [PDF] has made its way to the Internet from the All-Russian Conference on Game Industry (ACGi) 2009.
It reveals, among other interesting things, that the PS3's OS footprint has again been slashed down to 50MB in the latest PS3 Firmware revision.
As mentioned previously, back in PS3 Firmware 1.80 the PS3's memory footprint was reduced to 74MB.
The document also outlines PlayStation Development Resources, Architecture of the PlayStation 3, Case Studies for both PSP / PS3 and Advanced Programming... definitely a good read at 86 slides long!

I do. The idea of a slim form factor pc is extremely desirable. Seriously, who are you to decide what features are useful? Furthermore, I'd be delighted to learn where you got your statistics, and specifically what constitutes "very, very few". I'd be shocked if you didn't pull that statement right out of your behind.
This has nothing to do with the install size its still 130mb+ this has to do with the amount of ram the ps3 uses, and as you can tell since 1.8 they have added a lot of features including in game xmb! [side not the xbox at last report uses 32 mb].
