    UPDATE (February 16) - Now the 16th Video Released >>> The next PS3 NVidia RSX accelerated steps
    (Original Article from Nov. 14) Is the PS3 a bit closer to gaining Hardware Acceleration (via RSX) in OtherOS (Linux) with a proper driver to enable the GPU chip? We are not there, but we may be getting closer to a reality. Earlier this year (back in April) we detailed some of the progress that the busy dev RenéRebe has made with unlocking the potential of the PlayStation 3's RSX chip and now today we have been greeted with a new video and what we can expect with this project as the developer starts to undertake the challenge of further unlocking one more component of the Ps3 hardware,. The developer has alot of videos on other intresting subjects in his diverse YouTube channel >>> (Bits and More) <<< many very informative video's..

      Messaged Rene to see where the PS3 work progression is going and this is his reply:-

      wenn I feel like it. Also did you test the t2 build? I got very little feedback, and actually more questions to help getting it running on Gentoo or Debian. Which is to say not very motivating.

      I haven't tested T2 build myself as i am a complete noob when it comes to Linux OS. I hope he doesn't lose all motivation for this it would be a shame.

      Yeah I don't know Linux from my ass or a hole in the ground. A through and through windows guy. Only real experience I have with Linux is setting up my DreamPI to get my Dreamcast online for multiplayer games over modern net. So I am afraid I won't know where to start to help give feedback to this.

      I hope he goes a little further and get some help from Linux testers. I haven't tried to install Linux yet on my ps3 although I'd like to try it at some point in the future.
