Linux is for guys who like to tweak software and their OS as much as they like to tweak hardware. If that's you, there is no finer distro in the world than Slackware.
Like OZ_SCO said are you asking about PS3 in particular. If so you have very limited choices and be ready to spend money or time or both.

I still use linux but on a more experimental basis (keep a copy of arch linux in the dvd tray at all times) and for projects tht windows isnt flexible enough for.
In theory Linux is a working ecosystem.
In practise its nowhere near.
also arch installs in about 10 mins if you use a fast mirror. uk2.net for me
