Terra Soft has confirmed on its website that Yellow Dog Linux will be compatible with the PlayStation 3. Few other details are given, though video demonstrations are promised as coming soon.

Sony has as recently as August shown interest in bringing Linux or OS X to the console. Terra Soft's confirmation indicates that they either (a) are wishful thinkers or (b) have made a deal with Sony to bring their Linux variant to the super computer/game console behemoth. Video demonstrations might suggest they have a dev kit in house, but those have yet to materialize.

We've sent off a list of questions to Terra Soft; we'll let you know what we hear.
