    There really is no benefit, it just gives you geek cred.

    It can play emulators.

    I have SNES and NES emulators running on my PS3 and using my sixaxis through bluetooth. I'm even playing Chrono Trigger while waiting for MGS4.

    You can also play more video files. Tthe PS3 can only play MP4, most AVI, etc, but by installing VLC on Linux you can view files that do not have PS3 compatible video/audio codecs. I honestly haven't done this, but know its possible.

    The internet browser in Linux is also better. I use ububtu ppc though, so I can't get flash player (which restricts most online videos). I'm pretty sure other versions of Linux can use flash, though, and there are other programs that can take the place of adobe's flash player (none work vas well yet, though).

    Mainly i use it for emulation and the internet. I would use it for video, but using my PC to stream files to my PS3s XMB is much easier. Most of my files are compatible with the PS3 anyway. I'm also a noob when it comes to Linux, so I don't know how to network my PC to it.

    Here's a site that has the version of Linux I use (Ubuntu), plus install instructions and help. Research the alternate versions first because you may find that Yellow Dog or Fedora are better for what you want.
