Linux, PS3, and Flash
Here’s an interesting interview with the Yellow Dog Linux people about the PS3 flavour of Linux they’re developing. A spokesperson says: “With our operating system, the Playstation could very easily be your home CD player, DVD player, MP3 player and home computer, as well as a great game box,” said Terra Soft CEO Kai Staats of the PS3, “This is not an application-limited appliance, this is a full-blown computer. There is no issue of ‘can it do this or that?’ It can do everything.”
One point of concern for PS3 Linux users is the fact that Flash Player 9 for YDL is not available for the Cell/PS3 version of YDL. But guess what? There’s something you can actually do about this, and that is to contact Adobe, asking them for Flash for PS3. The link below gives the Adobe request form URL and also provides the text you can use to make your request. Easy as pie! I’ve done it, now it’s your turn.
