Marc Rust (amr) writes in with an extract from his AMR:blog: "Linux for Playstation 2 Community has a project on how to run Mozilla on your PS2 (via Linux, I assume): 'Project Description: This project will provide a Mozilla distribution for the PlayStation2. This project will also collect associated files, utilities and documentation to enable users to build Mozilla on their own.'"

What if Sony decides to sell semi-cheap Linux Desktop Pack (Knoppix kind of DVD with loads of ready to use FOSS software, wireless keyboard & mouse, DVI connector for monitor) as a addon with PS3 (the Cell arch)? Sold in millions... Linux desktop usage might go up somewhat ;)

Considering that the PS3 should come out in 2004/2005 or so then by that time Linux kernel, graphics subsystem and productivity software will be way beyond what is required for snappy, pretty and practical desktop.
