Tips on Installing Linux on PS3

By Dana Goldberg

For those people that know quite a lot about software development, they are most likely to know that there is almost a constant battle between open source and proprietary software development. It is interesting therefore to note that there is now talk about a Linux PS3.

It is a well known fact that the Sony PS3 is seen as one of the best gaming devices that is currently available on the market. You will be sure that you are getting a great product if you buy one. If you do decide to get a Linux one then all you have to do is load the operating system on the hard drive of the gaming device. This means that you could get a whole new array of games.

You don't have to go to a lot of trouble to get the Linux OS onto your device. Just make sure that it is installed on the hard drive of the gaming console. Then you are going to be able to choose any sort of open source games that are available.

Many people might even want to design their own games and this type of device could be a way of letting them do this. Some might say that you can't be sure of the way in which open source games are actually developed but this is really a lot of nonsense. There is in fact a lot of standards that go into the development of open source software so you can be sure that they are well made.

The main thing to make sure of is that of course you get a professional to help you install the operating system on the hard drive. This will mean that you won't be at a disadvantage at all and you could decide to play whichever game you would like to.

So go ahead and choose a Linux PS3 if you would like to. - 30240
