I saw this link the other day [1], is anyone else looking into making a 
Gentoo ISO for the PS3?

I took a look at the programming examples[2] (it's all in 
'CellSDK11.iso') for the Cell BE on Linux.  Modding the OpenGL/AL 
libraries, as well as ffmpeg, etc to take advantage of the Cell's 7 
128bit vector processing SPEs would really produce some spectacular 
results.

The PS3 could be used as a MythTV frontend, a USRP/GnuRadio [3] 
platform, a Blender development box, a PovRay [4] render box, and whole 
host of other stream processors...

Jason.
