    Does anyone here take advantage of the other OS option on their PS3? I've been reading about doing it for weeks and my friend let me mess around with it on his PS3. Was it pretty easy to do and can you still play PS3 games online after you do it.

    a computer? You mean like; a computer-computer? with the desktop and the OS, and the GUI and all that?

    What it does is partition your PS3 into the two OS's: the game one and the Linux one. In fact, I am in the process of installing Ubuntu, but it just says it cannot find "rootfs" whenever I boot it up. =/
