Benifit of loading Linux on a PS3?

I just ordered one so I was looking around on the web. I keep finding al ot of stuff about installing Linux on it. Why would you do it? I know nothing about linux so youll have to explain it all to me? What can you do once Linux is on a PS3 that you couldn't do without it?

you could do about 459423792847 times thing more than you could without it, but most likely none of the possibilities you would really care about if you're asking. I used to run abecx.net on my dreamcast.

You're asking a very verbose question, to put in car terms its like getting a rolling chassis and asking what website can I goto to see all possible options. There is pretty much nothing you cant do with linux that I know of ^_^

Yes you can. They probably have an all in one media center applications similar to XBMC for the xbox.

For example: ( I do not know if its any good )

Hunt4m3x showed me a video a while back with a PS3 that had XP loaded onto it.
