Yellow Dog Linux has finally been officially unleashed as a download. Whilst the files required have been available either officially via disc or unofficially by bit-torrent download, this is the first time YDL has been available from public servers. Anyway, now there is nothing to stop your inner hacker from exploring the “Install Other OS” option that taunts you from your PS3’s system settings menu… well that’s if you download the 3.3GB ISO file! 😯
Still for those of you with the time it’s probably a worthy download just to see what can be achieved. I am sure that those of you who have been keeping a close eye on things are aware that a lot can be achieved with Linux PS3, so understandably one that is specifically designed to make the most of Sony’s hardware will get a lot of attention over the coming months as certain advances are achieved (*crosses fingers for more media playback*).
