Sony's disabling of Linux (http://www.engadget.com/tag/ps3,linux) on the PS3 (http://www.engadget.com/product/ps3-slim) has made many people very angry, some more so (http://www.engadget.com/2010/05/13/air-force-feels-afterburned-as-sony-clips-the-ps3s-linux-wings/) than others, but for an enthusiast named madshaun1984 it was something of a call to arms. He didn't file a lawsuit (http://www.engadget.com/2010/04/29/sony-taken-to-court-over-ps3-other-os-removal/) or whine about it in forums -- oh no. He sat down to get XBMC working and has succeeded, albeit slowly. Includes video. While not perfect admitting so, it does bring one of the most popular homebrew apps to the ps3. Also gives people not updating to the recent FW a reason to turn their ps3 on again. Could this be the break through in homebrew that people have been waiting for?
