linux on 40gb ps3? yes or no?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i really like the thought of being able to use my ps3 like a normal desktop,but what turns me down on the thought is mainly my HDD and the usefullness. im not sure if 40gigs is enough for running the O/S on it fulltime while installing apps etc from the package manager. i dont want to fill up the HDD or totally slow everything down through fragmenting files.

also is it pratical? or is the switch from playing games to the o/s annoying enough to not bother? thanks for advice.

It would completely depend on what you wanted to use it for, 40gbs is enough for a small system to use if you are smart about it, If you are worried about it you can pick up a bigger HDD pretty cheap now. Either way its not going to be a supercomputer but if you have a few certain things you want to use it for 40gb should be fine just don't overload it with useless junk you probably wont use or can use on your main PC system.

As for is it worth it... In my opinion no. Keep it as your gaming/media system.

I don't know if I answered you question or not but I hope it helps. =/
