"By contrast, the PS3 has had support for running Linux since before it was released, and Sony has made support code and packages widely available. The "Cell addons" CD released around the system's launch included direct support for Fedora 5 and 6, but it also provided all the files needed for other distributions to develop PS3 ports. As a result, Fedora 7 simply works on the PS3 without the need for a separate CD, although you still need to use the Sony downloads to install the bootloader. The add-on software CD (see Resources) continues to get updates with new kernel versions."
