As what it seems to be a SONY policy removing features form the PS3 ("it only does every thing .... until SONY takes it away") the company released the firmware update 3.21 that removes the ability to run “Other OS”, namely Linux, on the PS3. So what do you think of this disabling the “Other OS”, and what SONY has been doing removing features, manly in the new consoles models.

Meeeeehhhh.
I don't even see the huge point in have a million features.
It can play games, connect my laptop to my tv, play bluray.... everything else is extra.

All I want is to play games. Multi tasking is just getting to be too much.
I have a cell phone that makes calls
I have a camera to take pictures.
I have a Ipod Video to listen to music
I have a laptop to access the internet and do other computer things.
And I (will) have a ps3 to play games.

I don't understand whats so wrong with that?
Now the backwards compatibility take away... thats messing with the games and I do not appreciate that. none

Well, Sony having the motto/slogan "It only does everything." for the PS3 and then taking features away pretty much goes against that. And penalizing people to who don't update because they don't want to lose the feature doesn't help matters much if at all.

Same as for Iphone: illegal.
You bought a HARDWARE: what you load into it its urz biznz
Basically an infringement of the market freedom. Pity them, drowning without shame.

So?
I don't have the PS3(I don't have the money, and that will not change soon) but to run Linux I have my Computer so I don't see the point.
