Submission + - Sony PS3 Hack Brings Linux Back (thinq.co.uk) 1

Stoobalou writes: Sony-bating hacker GeoHot reckons he can restore the ability to run Linux on Sony's flagship console, despite the fact that the company has deliberately removed the functionality.
A recent firmware upgrade to version 3.21 killed the 'Install Other OS' option in fat versions of the console's operating system, angering academics and hackers alike.
According to GeoHot (AKA George Hotz — the chap also credited with hacking the iPhone) anyone who didn't take the plunge and update to 3.21 will soon be able to do so without losing the ability to install third-party operating systems.
