PlayStation 3 no longer supports Linux

Sony announced last month that the original PlayStation 3 will no longer support the installation of an alternate operating system. As of Firmware v3.21 the option to "Install Other OS" will be disabled.

Now geek.com is reporting that a member of NeoGAF has written to Amazon claiming that his PlayStation 3 does not fit the original description of the product, and under European law have refunded him GBP 84.

I wonder if this will inspire more PS3 users to contact their retailers for a refund, although I don't expect the proportion of PS3 Linux users is high enough for Sony to reverse their decision.
