Would tend to agree with this. Having installed Linux on my PS3 I
was, to say
the least, underwhelmed. The PS3 doesn't have a massive amount of
memory
available, and has limited the accessibility to the hardware
(graphics in
particular). Would make for a nice server I guess.

The small amount of memory surprised me as well. I guess it is not
needed. However, I have heard rumblings that gamers think the poor
texture rendering (in their opinion - I don't have an opinion on this)
on the PS3 is because of too little RAM.

Can't say I can see what the complaints are, but then I'm very much _not_ a
hard-core gamer.

I guess I will need to see why it is totally ignoring my videos. I
think they are mainly DivX and Xvid. It would be nice if one could
just browse the USB storage contents to see what the PS3 thinks is
there, eliminating any non-video issues. What format is your USB
storage when used with the PS3?

I guess we are heading off topic here...

I feed my video files via mediatomb (running on a Buffalo NAS box) to the PS3,
but I believe that FAT32 should be picked up via a USB stick by the PS3 easily
enough. You might need to have your video files placed in a VIDEO directory on
the root of the filesystem however. Not something I've done/tried before.
