By now you've no doubt heard about (or possibly even attempted) installing PowerPC builds of Linux on your PlayStation 3, namely Yellow Dog and Fedora. Well, it would appear some clever devil in Japan has managed to shoehorn QEMU (a virtual machine and processor emulator) onto the PS3 as well, resulting in a rather sluggish but no less functional version of PlayStation 3 Windows. Oh, and just in case you're feeling a bit skeptical today, at about 15:00 is where dude boots out of Linux and back into the the PS3 XMB (not that that really proves anything).
