I doubt Sony will ever create a similar option to OtherOS on future systems again.

...One things for sure though, that particular community of users (many of them were the earliest adopters of PS3) will never trust Sony ever again.

Multiple arrows... Sony is just plain screwed, I suppose at this point Sony needs to take their wins where they can get them.

Can't move on. It's either Sony or Microsoft. Boned either way.
