Ps3's available to educational facilities?? whats wrong with just using a PC instead of using a PS3 as a very poor educational PC?
I agree Linux should just be used on PC's... who cares about using Linux with access to RSX anyway? RSX is a poor Nvidia chip based around the Geforce 7 series tech
the PS3 GPU was pretty much dated as soon as the console was launched. Cell on the other hand is an interesting CPU and i would like to see it in a PC someday so it's abilities can really be tested! It's being wasted in a console (not exactly an ideal CPU for gaming but can work) and is also used in some IBM blade servers.
