What are the odds that 3.30 doesn't remove linux but will allow a future update to silently do so? They catch the waiters that way..

Sounds like it. Maybe 3.30 is what enables that capability, or maybe it was introduced in 3.21 without anyones knowledge. they were already keeping aspects of what was updated secret so why not.
well hopefully its not the case.. it would suck to see my features disappearing randomly without me knowing...

i'm pretty sure with this declaration of terms, that they can upgrade/update our consoles without even letting know the player/customer. i'm pretty sure some clever guys will build up a server system that we don't ever have to use the sony servers anymore. so we are free of there crazy ideas to "big brother" us all.

is it just me or does it sound like this update also brings in automatic silent updates?
