To quote: This is a modified version of Linux or we can say Debian in this case where it will make AsbestOS much more smoother to work with the PS3. Here are the release notes taken from kha0S's official site.

RELEASE NOTES for v3.0
Changed ext4 mount options from default to noatime (decrease IO to disk).

Increased size of image to 2G (~800M free!)
Fixed network configuration – dhcp enabled in the right interface

Upgraded Debian release to testing (wheezyyyyyy)
