Bearded freaks and driver twiddlers the world over are in mourning. The Playstation 3 is about to lose its "second operating system" option, meaning that steam radio enthusiasts and tweakers will lose the ability to put Linux on their PS3s after the next update.
Sony's official blog states that users will need to back up any data held on the "Other OS" partition, as that data will be unrecoverable after the update.
Did you install Linux on your PS3? If so, why? Let us know if you're upset or completely indifferent to the change. We'd love to hear from you.
