For those out there using Yellow Dog there is a upgrade waiting for you. I’ve tried Yellow Dog and Ubuntu so far. Right now I’m sticking with Ubuntu, just because there is more support out there if I run into problems. I’m no Linux expert, I just use it on weekends sometimes. But it’s a great option if you don’t have a primary PC in the house.
Anyway some key features of YDL v6.0 are:
Yellow Dog Linux v6.0 supports:
– Sony PS3.
